STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES

Baptist College is committed to providing equal access to education, housing, facilities and all school sponsored events through a dedicated effort to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and state and local regulations regarding individuals with disabilities. Pursuant to these laws, no qualified individual shall unlawfully be denied access to or participation in any services, programs, or activities of Baptist College on the basis of their disability. Baptist College will provide reasonable accommodations for the needs of qualified students as they pursue post-secondary education.

Baptist College recognizes that disabilities come in all shapes and sizes, and can include physical, mental, social, and learning disabilities. Reasonable accommodations will be provided to qualified individuals, as outlined by the regulations. Any accommodation request, however, that is unduly burdensome to the college or fundamentally alters the nature of the service, program, course, or activity cannot be fulfilled.

Students requesting accommodations should contact the Section 504/ADA Academic Coordinator, Room 101 in the Science Building, at 901-572-2570 or by sending an e-mail to disability.accommodations@bchs.edu
