Access and Disability Resources, under the Division of Student Success, is committed to providing qualified students with disabilities equally effective and meaningful access to all academic programs, activities, and services of the college in compliance with the ADAAA (2008) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act 1973.


Students who require classroom, testing, event, or residence hall accommodations due to disability (including Learning Disabilities, ADHD, Sensory, medical, psychiatric or physical disabilities), must:

  • Voluntarily disclose this information to ADR using the Disability Disclosure Form (pdf).
  • Submit documentation as needed. For details, see the Documentation Guidance web page.
  • Complete the intake process with the Director of Access and Disability Resources using the Intake Form (pdf).
  • Compete the online Faculty Notification Request Form to request Faculty Notification letters. The intake process must be complete and Notification letters provided to faculty before accommodations are considered active.
  • Request academic accommodations every semester. Accommodations must be appropriate to the disability without lowering the academic standards or altering integrity of the course.

Students seeking accommodations and/or services may contact Access and Disability Resources upon admission to Wheelock to gather initial information about ADR. Once a student has decided to attend Wheelock and makes a deposit to hold their place, they are then highly encouraged to voluntarily disclose their disability to ADR, request services and complete the intake process. There is no automatic identification process from Admissions or any other Wheelock office to ADR.

Who is eligible for services?

To establish accommodations through Access and Disability Resources, a student must:

  • Have a documented disability;
  • Apply and be accepted for admission to Wheelock College through the regular admissions process;
  • Provide current and comprehensive documentation of a temporary or permanent disability that requires accommodation; and
  • Schedule an initial meeting with the director of Access and Disability Resources to discuss needs and register for services.
