Academic and Disability Accommodations
Sherman College works to ensure that our educational program and services are accessible to all qualified students regardless of their disability or special needs. Sherman College provides reasonable and appropriate accommodations for students with documented disabilities.
Incoming students are encouraged to complete the accommodations application and submit all necessary documentation as soon as possible to ensure a response to your request prior to all testing for the new quarter. Accommodations applications are accepted throughout the academic quarter.
Students experiencing academic difficulty without any previously diagnosed disability are encouraged to first talk with your faculty for more assistance to evaluate your current performance in comparison to your efforts towards class preparation (ex. study time, note taking, reviewing, etc.). You are also encouraged to visit student affairs to discuss your concerns and to consider a plan of action to improve your performance.
Reasonable accommodations vary according to the type and degree of disability. Review of requests will be made on an individual basis and reasonable accommodations afforded, if any, will depend on the nature and extent of the disability, documentation provided, and the requirements of the curriculum. Sherman College of Chiropractic will provide qualified students who have documented disabilities with appropriate services that do not fundamentally alter college requirements and/or policies. The college is not required to provide aids, devices, or services of a personal nature.
The college operates in accordance with the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 with regard to offering services to students.
