Presentation College is committed to ensuring equal learning opportunities for all students, and provides students with emotional, learning, or physical disabilities reasonable accommodations in accordance with the College’s procedures.
Presentation College will make reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities who officially disclose disabilities. Reasonable accommodations are those that do not fundamentally alter the nature of the program, that can be readily achieved without undue financial or administrative burden, and that can be provided without lowering academic and other essential performance standards. Each person who has met the academic and technical standards for admission to or participation in the College programs will receive the educational opportunities, programs and activities in the most integrated setting appropriate.
To be eligible for accommodation, the student must contact the Career and Learning Center at (605) 229-8580. This contact must be made as early as possible. Each student may be required to submit medical or other diagnostic documentation of disability and limitations and to participate in additional evaluation before receiving requested accommodations. Each student will be responsible for making timely and appropriate disclosures and requests for accommodations and for actively participating in the securing of his or her accommodations and auxiliary aids. This includes, when appropriate, applying for funding for specialized support services from vocational rehabilitation agencies.
