STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES / ADA


Disability accommodations are offered through Williams Baptist College Counseling Services. It is our desire to help students make the transition into college life and connect them with those services and resources needed to be successful in college.

In accordance with Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, WBC provides reasonable accommodations and temporary accommodations to students with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, including learning.

It is important for students to understand that at WBC, students who wish to receive accommodations must self-identify to our counselors in order to begin the accommodation process. Please note that current and appropriate documentation of a disability is required in order to obtain requested services.

As students move into the adult world, self-advocacy and self-reliance become very important skills. The ability to cope with the challenges of daily living, as well as the ability to clearly communicate one's needs contribute to a successful college outcome.

The links provided on this page will answer many of the questions concerning disability services at WBC. If you are an individual with a disability and require any assistive devices, services, or other accommodations, please contact Aneita Cooper at acooper@wbcoll.edu, or visit the Counseling Services office located in the Joy Ring Student Success Center to schedule an appointment. Please indicate that your appointment is regarding accommodations, so sufficient time will be allocated to cover all issues.
