Services for Students with Disabilities


Return to: Student Handbook  

Andrews University accepts and appreciates diversity in its students inclusive of those with disabilities and will provide reasonable accommodations on an individualized basis to the greatest extent possible without compromising the integrity of the student’s degree. It is the responsibility of the student with a disability to seek assistance from the disability support officer in the Student Success Center and to provide detailed documentation of the disability from an appropriate, licensed official to certify the student as having a disability. The cost of obtaining documentation must be borne by the student. Students should request accommodations as early as possible. Although efforts will be made to provide accommodations as quickly as possible, Andrews University cannot guarantee certain accommodations (i.e. alternate texts or interpreters) earlier than six weeks after the receipt of acceptable documentation. For more information please contact Student Success at 269-471-3227.

Students who wish to request alternate housing arrangements due to a disability or to a chronic health condition should contact the disability services coordinator, Carletta Witzel, at Student Success (269-471-3227). Andrews University will make every attempt to provide reasonable accommodations within on-campus housing facilities for students with documented disabilities or chronic health conditions.
