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.

It is important to note than an accommodation may be appropriate for one particular course but not for another. Accommodations cannot be made on a retroactive basis; requests for accommodations must be supported by appropriate documentation and must be submitted in a timely manner. Students may request a review of recommendations and/or provide updated documentation as necessary. There are no fees for accommodations provided for students with disabilities.
