Request for academic and housing accommodations, disability services
Augustana College is committed to providing an inclusive environment for all students. Students with documented disabilities should contact Yen Dao, director of Student Success Services, to determine the most appropriate accommodations. We provide reasonable accommodations in accordance with the American with Disabilities Act.
Requests for housing accommodations are due by June 30.
Requests for classroom accommodations are due July 15.
All students requiring academic, housing or other accommodations should use the form below.
To initiate this process:
1. Complete the Request for Special Accommodations below.
2. Along with the form, submit one form of documentation of your disability(s). We will accept an Individualized Educational Plan (IEP), 504 Plan, or the Documentation of Disability form completed by a licensed professional.
Please feel free to send information through email, or fax to 309-794-2705 Attn: Yen Dao, or by mail to Yen Dao, 639 38th St., Rock Island, Ill. 61201.
We will review your request and supporting documentation and provide you an email outlining your accommodations. You will need to present this email to all of your professors so they can provide the approved accommodations.
It is important to speak with your professors early in the term, ideally in the first week of the term and at least seven days in advance of needing the accommodations.
If you do not give sufficient advance notice, the college may not be able to provide the requested accommodations.
Many accommodations require time to coordinate. For example, in order to provide a separate and quiet room to take a test, your professor will need to reserve a room and find a proctor available for the testing time. Submitting your request and supporting documentation early will help ensure that you receive the needed accommodations.
If we deny any part of your request, you will receive an email explaining why your request is denied.
