Students With Disabilities

The Angelina College Disability Services Handbook (available at www.angelina.edu; Student Services) outlines the college policies and procedures for providing reasonable disability accommodations at the post-secondary level.  The goal of this service is to assist any student with a disability to be successful in our academic community.

For the qualified individual with a disability, the college provides reasonable accommodations as defined in the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 504, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and the ADA Amendments Act of 2009. The college will make reasonable accommodations for qualified students with a diagnosed physical and/or learning disability who apply for admission. If reasonable accommodation in registration procedure or instructional environment is requested, the student must obtain an Application for Disability Services from the college website and have an interview with a support services counselor. Current medical and/or psychological documentation, which verifies their disability, will be required with the Application for Disabilty Services. Reasonable accommodation requests and documentation are subject to review by a special needs committee.

The deadline for applying for assistance with the Special Student Support Services Office is normally four weeks prior to the beginning of the initial semester of enrollment, to allow time to provide adequate coordination of services. The deadline for applying for subsequent continuous semesters of enrollment is two weeks prior to the beginning of regular college registration for that semester. For more information concerning special services for students with disabilities, contact the Sellestine Hunt, Associate Dean of Student Services at shunt@angelina.edu.
