Illinois College is committed to providing equal educational opportunity for individuals with disabilities in accordance with the various policy statements of the college and in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. In support of its commitment to provide equal educational opportunity, Illinois College provides a variety of services and accommodations to students with documented disabilities.
Our goal at Illinois College is to provide an excellent education for all students so that they can be and do their best. Illinois College strives to provide reasonable accommodations to those students on campus who need and will benefit from specific learning accommodations.
Students who had an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or a 504 plan in high school should identify themselves to the Student Disability Services office as soon as they are accepted into Illinois College, as some accommodations require additional time to secure. Students will be asked to complete a Request for Services Application and provide appropriate documentation that verifies their specific qualifying disabilities and identifies the need for reasonable accommodations. Students that have provided appropriate documentation will receive an Accommodations Notification form and will be asked to schedule meetings to discuss their needs with the Disability Service Coordinator and their faculty during the first week of classes.
Students who did not have an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or a 504 plan in high school, and believe that they have a learning disability, are encouraged to contact the Disability Service Coordinator to discuss options for determining their eligibility.
