Student Accessibility Center
The Student Accessibility Center is located in Parker Library on the first floor, PL112B.
At Wesley College, students with documented disabilities can gain equal access to all aspects of academic life. Student Accessibility Center seeks to assist Wesley students with disabilities in receiving reasonable accommodations in academic programs and equal access to all aspects of academic life. This goal reflects the mission of Wesley College in striving to realize a holistic campus environment of caring, tolerance and inclusiveness for all people, no matter what their ability.
Although we do not offer a comprehensive special needs program, Student Accessibility Center provides appropriate accommodations for students with documented physical, learning or emotional disabilities. SAC also works closely with other campus offices to provide equal access for students with disabilities so that they may participate in all aspects of student life. In addition, it seeks to disseminate information among the students, faculty and staff to increase awareness of people with disabilities. Students with disabilities must still meet all requirements for admission and for graduation.

Wesley College provides accommodative services to students with documented disabilities in adherence with the American with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1972. Nondiscrimination under Federal Grants and Programs assures that no one with a disability is to be excluded from participating, denied benefits, or discriminated against because of that disability.
Wesley College is committed to making its websites and other electronic content/communications accessible to all users. In an effort to fulfill this commitment, we welcome any comments or suggestions on accessibility-related improvements. Please share your thoughts by emailing email@example.com. If you have specific questions about Wesley College’s website, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students who have received accommodations in high school or have a documented disability are encouraged to contact the Student Accessibility Center for information on how to submit the SAC online application for accommodations and provide documentation. Disability disclosure and request for accommodations are the responsibility of the student.
Before receiving any SAC services or accommodations, a student must submit documentation confirming the disability. A psycho-educational evaluation is required, and should include information on the student’s intellectual functioning, processing abilities, and achievements. Also, specific recommendations should include a reasonable accommodation for the student’s disability. Although an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or 504 Plan is helpful as supporting documentation, it is not sufficient documentation by itself. A copy of the documentation policies are available below.

- Mental Health Documentation Policy
- ADD-ADHD Documentation Policy
- Physical Health Documentation Policy
- Learning Disorder Documentation Policy
- Pervasive Disorder Documentation Policy
- Hearing Impairment Documentation Policy
