Reasonable Accommodations

Student Disability Services at Baruch provides students with disabilities the accommodations necessary for them to access all Baruch has to offer.

A reasonable accommodation is a modification or adjustment to a course, program, service, activity or facility that enables a qualified student with a disability to have an equal opportunity to attain the same level of performance or enjoy equal benefits and privileges as are available to similarly situated students without disabilities.

Once students have self-identified, applied for services, and provided documentation of their disability, our staff works to determine eligibility for reasonable accommodations. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), both the student and the College must carry out these responsibilities in a timely manner. Student Disability Services also acts as a liaison between the student and faculty and staff.
