Purpose of this Manual
This manual was created to provide students with disabilities a guide to the types of services and accommodations available at the College (recognizing that this manual described examples of commonly requested accommodations for disabilities), and the policies and procedures for accessing them in a timely manner. Eligibility and documentation requirements are detailed. Please be aware that this manual is updated annually. Changes in campus resources, laws and regulations pertaining to disability services and documentation, and on-going developments in best practices may lead to policy and service changes. Students can obtain an updated manual at the start of the academic year at the AccessAbility Services office, or online at www.mtholyoke.edu/accessability. This manual is available in alternate formats upon request.
