Services for Students with Disabilities

Hood College actively supports the rights of students with disabilities to have equal access to education. In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Hood makes every reasonable effort to accommodate the needs of students with diagnosed disabilities.

Students with disabilities who will need accommodations must notify the Disability Services coordinator as soon as possible. Early notification prevents delay in initiation of services and ensures the student full access to educational activities. Students should present documentation of a disability from a medical professional, and this documentation should state accommodations the student requires to participate fully in the educational programs at Hood College. The Disability Services coordinator will meet with the student to prepare an individualized plan for services. The student is then prepared to take on the responsibility of advocating for her or himself.
