Reasonable Accommodations Definition:
 
Reasonable accommodation does not negate requirements for successful completion of a program, course, service and/or activity, adherence to generally acceptable standards of behavior and the College's General and Academic Student Rights and Responsibilities, and adherence to administrative and faculty/staff directions and instructions.
 
In determining the College's ability to offer reasonable accommodation to an otherwise qualified student with a disability, each request for an accommodation will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Factors to be examined include among others:
  • the academic and technical standards required for admission or participation in an educational program or service;
  • the purpose and nature of the program, course, and/or service;
  • the precise education-related abilities and functional limitations of the student and how those limitations could be overcome with reasonable accommodations;
  • the nature and cost of accommodation required in relation to the College's financial resources;
  • the consequences of such an accommodation upon the operation and educational mission of the College, course, program, service and/or activity;
  • other federal, state and local regulatory requirements.

Attendant Care Accommodation:

An otherwise qualified student who requires attendant care services must make arrangements to provide for his/her own attendant care services. The College does not assume the coordination or financial responsibilities for attendant care services.


Disclaimer:
The College is not required to offer or provide accommodation, to admit or to continue to admit, an individual with a disability to any particular program, course, service, and/or provide educational opportunities and other services when:
  • the educational standards or mission of WBC would be substantially altered;
  • the nature of the program, course, service, and/or activity would be fundamentally altered;
  • the student is not otherwise qualified (with or without accommodations) to meet the academic and technical standards required for admission or participation in an educational program, course, service and/or activity;
  • the effects of the disability cannot be overcome even with reasonable accommodation;
  • the individual would not be able to complete the program, course, service, and/or activity, even with reasonable accommodations;
  • an undue financial or administrative hardship (college-wide) would be caused by the accommodation;
  • if the individual would still pose a direct threat to the health or safety of himself/herself or others.
