The decision to provide reasonable accommodations is based on a student’s disability. Accommodations are approved by the ADA Coordinator on a case-by-case basis after a review of the student’s supporting documentation. Supporting documentation includes verification of disability by a professional, self-disclosure of disability and release of confidential information.
Reasonable accommodations for College services and the College’s credit-earning methods include, but are not limited to:
- Guided Study, online, and e-Pack courses and course examinations
- Prior learning assessment (PLA) courses
- TECEP examinations
- Admissions and Academic Advising
- Access to College materials
If you are not sure what accommodations you may need, contact the ADA Coordinator. It is important to note that since accommodation needs can change over time, a prior history of accommodations may not lead to similar accommodations at Thomas Edison State College. Accommodations for a disability are not retroactive and will not be considered for any event or situation that occurred in the past.
Students who take courses at other colleges or who take college-level examinations such as CLEP, DANTES, etc., should make their request for accommodations directly to the other college(s) or testing agency.Information on the website is the most current and up to date and may differ from that which is elsewhere found in print.
