Services for Students with Disabilities

Keuka College is committed to ensuring equal access to its curricular and co-curricular opportunities for students with disabilities. Offering a range of services, The Disability Services Office facilitates reasonable accommodations to support our students with disabilities. The Disability Services Office also serves as a resource to the college's administrative, staff, and academic departments that have responsibility for or obligations to accommodate faculty, staff and campus visitors with disabilities.  All students, faculty, staff and visitors are invited to contact us for more information. We may be reached by e-mail at

Keuka College’s Policy on Disability and Accessibility is implemented in the context of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 as amended and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504). The term “disability” may include learning, physical, sensory, psychological, medical, and certain temporary disabilities. The college provides students with reasonable accommodations in accordance with these and other applicable federal and state laws. Students with disabilities may request academic accommodations; housing and dining accommodations; modifications to college policies, rules, and regulations; environmental adjustments such as the removal of architectural, communication, or transportation barriers; and auxiliary aids and services.

To request accommodations, students should submit all accommodation requests to the Disability Services Office. Students requesting accommodations should review the guidance provided by the Disability Services Office for documentation, but generally must submit documentation that clearly demonstrates that (1) the student has a physical or mental impairment, and (2) the impairment prevents the normal exercise of any bodily or mental functions (or can be shown to exist through accepted clinical or laboratory diagnostic tests), as compared to most people in the general population. A diagnosis of a disorder, or submission of an evaluation, does not automatically qualify an individual for accommodations. Appropriate documentation must be provided by a qualified professional, meet currency requirements, include diagnosis information as well as information about the functional limitations caused by the impairment, and support the request of specific accommodations. Accommodations are determined through an interactive process that includes an intake interview.
