Disability Support Services​


The mission statement of Providence College states that the College “...encourages the deepest respect for the essential human dignity, freedom, and equality of every person...”  Providence College is also committed to providing students with disabilities equal access to programs, facilities, services, and activities at the College.  The College will make every effort to provide “reasonable accommodations” so that students can be ensured equal access and work to remove any barriers which may prevent this from occurring.

Students with documented disabilities (learning, psychiatric, physical, medical) may register with the O.A.S. to request reasonable academic accommodations.  The Assistant Director for Disability Support Services will discuss each student's unique needs and coordinate individualized services.  Reasonable academic accommodations may include the following: alternate setting/extended time tests, note taking services, readers/scribes, recordings for the Blind & Dyslexic, Braille materials, assistive technology, sign language/oral interpreters, and priority registration.
