Lindenwood University complies with the American with Disabilities Act by making our programs and services accessible to students with disabilities. SASS ensures that these students receive assistance by providing auxiliary aids and accommodations. We strive to give students an equal opportunity to succeed in earning their degree. 
 
Accommodations are provided to qualified students with a variety of disabilities, including, but not limited to the following: attention deficit disorder, learning disabilities, mobility impairment, hearing loss, and visual impairment. Students with physical, sensory, medical, psychological, or other temporary impairments may receive services.
 
Reasonable accommodations are provided on an individual basis and are determined based on submitted documentation as well as discussion with students. Accommodations will reflect the diagnosis provided on your documentation. Some accommodations include assistance with note taking, double time on tests, private testing areas, tutoring, extended time on writing assignments, and preferred seating. Lindenwood also provides accommodations with mobility disabilities. Because our campus does have classroom buildings that may not fully accommodate student with mobility issues due to the age of the buildings, we will move classrooms for these students to an accessible building.
 
In order to receive accommodations students need to follow the appropriate process established by the Student Support and Accessibility Program. The student needs to contact the Student Support and Accessibility Program Manager, Jeremy Keye, at (636) 949-4510 or by e-mail at jkeye@lindenwood.edu. Next, the student will be asked to provide appropriate documentation with diagnosis. The coordinator and student will discuss proper accommodations based on documentation.  Once accommodations are decided, the coordinator will give the student Campus Accessibility Faculty Notification Forms to give to their professors. The student and professors will then discuss how to arrange the accommodations.
 
Students need to submit written documentation in order to receive accommodations. Documentation needs to be a current (within five years) assessment by a licensed psychologist or medical doctor. The documentation must include history, diagnostic tests, diagnosis, and recommendations for accommodations at the university level. These assessments are often called, “Psycho-educational Evaluations” and/or “Psychological Evaluations.”
 
Students need to request accommodations before the beginning of each semester/quarter and whenever a class change occurs. Until the student request accommodations for the semester, accommodations will not be given and they are not retroactive.
