Procedure for requesting accommodations for a Documented Disability
To receive accommodations for a disability, the student with a documented disability must:
- be admitted to or be enrolled in a course at Eastern Maine Community College;
- provide the Director of Disability Student Services with documentation of the disability; and,
- meet with the Director of Disability Student Services to request accommodations from the instructors.
The nature of a student’s disability, the content of documentation, and other records on file with the Director of Disability Student Services are confidential.
Information will be released to third parties when, and only when:
- It is necessary for the Director of Disability Student Services to share relevant information about a disability with college personnel directly involved in implementing the accommodations that have been mutually approved.
- In the judgment of the Director of Disability Student Services, the information is shared in the best interests of the student and will be handled/used discreetly to guide the response of others to student needs.
- It is necessary in response to a court order.
- The immediate circumstances surrounding the student constitute a serious threat to the life or well being of the student or others.
