Student Accessibility Services
Student Accessibility Services provides support that allows students with disabilities to participate fully in the life of the community. Wentworth subscribes to the policies set forth in the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA) and in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which mandate equal opportunity in education programs and activities for students with disabilities.
Students with physical, medical, psychiatric, and learning disabilities are eligible to utilize Student Accessibility Services to arrange for reasonable accommodations and seek ongoing support at any point in their Wentworth career. Students interested in receiving academic accommodations must begin the Academic Accommodation process.
