Determining Your Eligibility
You are a qualified student with a disability if you meet the academic/technical standards and essential eligibility requirements.
You are expected to follow the Lynchburg College Honor and Behavioral codes like any other student. Your disability is not an excuse for infraction of either of these codes.
It is your responsibility to provide age-appropriate documentation, with enough advance notice for accommodations to be put into place. Eligibility must first be determined in order to make arrangements for accommodations and are not retroactive if you delay. Late requests may negatively impact the College's ability to provide accommodations in a timely fashion because some can take from four to six weeks to put in place.
