Accommodations are available to all currently enrolled students with a documented disability substantially limiting them in major activities. Individuals eligible for accommodation services include (but are not limited to) students with documented hearing, visual, speech, and/or learning disabilities.

If you are eligible and plan to seek academic accommodations for your online courses, please make those arrangements prior to the start of classes. Notify our Accommodations Services Center using the instructions outlined below in advance of your class beginning, and they will provide you with the guidance you need to request accommodations.

Students Requesting Academic Accommodations

Once a student has been admitted to Champlain College Online, the following guidelines will assist in making a smooth transition into the College:

  1. Submit current, comprehensive, objective, professional documentation of your disability to the Office of Accessibility.
  2. A staff member will contact you before the start of the semester to schedule an appointment for discussion of: the academic accommodations process, learning needs and supporting documentation, and appropriate and reasonable academic accommodations.
  3. Once registered with the Office of Accessibility, it is the responsibility of the student to contact the office at the start of each semester to request that their academic accommodations be enacted.

PLEASE NOTE: It is the student’s responsibility to arrange for certain provisions which are outside the scope of the Office of Accessibility and the College. These provisions include, but may not be limited to: attendant care, mobility training, items/services of a personal nature and sources of financial aid. The Office of Accessibility is available to consult with a student regarding needs and possible local resources.
