Congratulations on your admission to Brockport! Now that you have decided to attend the College, we would like to inform all newly admitted students of the services offered to individuals with disabilities. If you do not have a documented disability, then the information contained in this letter does not apply to you.
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as well as the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, states that no qualified person shall, solely by reason of disability, be denied access to, participation in, or the benefits of, any program or activity offered by an institution of higher education. In the spirit of these laws, The College at Brockport provides equal opportunity to individuals with disabilities. The Office for Students with Disabilities (OSD) provides support and assistance to self–identified students with disabilities. Among the services provided are those related to accessibility of campus facilities, reasonable accommodations, advocacy for student needs and referral to appropriate governmental and community agencies.
In order to receive services and accommodations, it is necessary that you provide the College with documentation that contains a diagnosis of the specific disability from a qualified professional, and provides a rationale for the requested accommodations. The assessment instruments used must be appropriate for an adult population. The College has the right to review documentation and determine individual accommodations and services. Previous provision of service, or lack of it, does not guarantee or preclude college services.
For more specific information regarding documentation and to receive a confidential registration form, please contact the Office for Students with Disabilities by email email@example.com or phone (585) 395–5409.
We look forward to working with you.
