Students with Disabilities

Augustana College is committed to ensuring that educational programs are accessible to all qualified students in accordance with state and federal laws.  The Disability Services Coordinator, Yen Dao, oversees all academic accommodations.  The Dean of Students, Evelyn Campbell, oversees all other accommodations.  Students who require accommodations are encouraged to contact one of these staff members. 

Accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis.  Documentation from the appropriate licensed professional, as well as the high school IEP or 504 Plan, when applicable, is generally required.  The Dean of Students chairs the Accommodations Committee for Students with Special Needs which makes recommendations when the Disability Services Coordinator or Dean of Students is not able to meet a student's request.  A brochure entitled Augustana College Building Access is available in the Dean of Students Office, the residence halls and the College Center.  It identifies the buildings with strobe light fire alarms, handicapped entrances and restrooms, Braille signage and fire refuges.  Students needing additional accommodations should confer with the Dean of Students regarding any special needs or accommodations and emergency evacuation procedures.
