Accessibility Services

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 Accessibility Services to arrange for reasonable accommodations and seek ongoing support. Students interested in receiving accommodations must follow the Accommodation Process and meet with Accessibility Services each semester.

All sessions with Accessibility staff members are free of charge and strictly confidential. No information will be released without the student's permission, except in cases of emergency. Accessibility Counselors are sensitive to issues of gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, and disabilities.

If you would like to speak with Accessibility Services, please schedule an appointment.

Information for Accepted Students

Congratulations on your acceptance to Wentworth!  All incoming students in need of accommodations can schedule intake appointments starting in May of their enrollment year.  In lieu of individual informational meetings, Accessibility Services provides valuable information on this website and is available to answer general questions at Accepted Student Days in the spring and Open Houses in the fall.

Voluntary Disclosure of Physical Access Needs Process

Any student with a physical impairment who may have difficulty evacuating a building independently in the event of an emergency is encouraged to complete the Voluntary Disclosure of Physical Access Needs form.  In addition to emergency evacuation assistance, a student who requires other physical access accommodations in the academic and/or residential buildings such as seating, elevator access, visual fire alarms, etc. can complete the form.
