Accessible Education Services

Accessible Education Services (formerly known as Disability Support Services) strives to meet the needs of students with documented disabilities in alignment with Roanoke College's commitment to providing equal access to educational opportunities for all students, in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

New Students: If you are interested in registering your disability with Accessible Education Services and/or requesting accommodations based on a documented disability, please visit the following link: Registering a Disability and Requesting Accommodations.

Campus Visit: Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to visit Roanoke College after their acceptance of admission. A personal visit enables the student and college representatives to meet and determine how the college can accommodate the student's physical and learning needs.  

Returning studentsReturning students who are actively using accommodations are reminded to pick up their accommodation letters and faculty signature form at the beginning of each semester from the Center for Learning and Teaching, and follow the procedure set forth for accessing academic accommodations. A face-to-face meeting with the Assistant Director of Academic Services for Accessible Education is not required for returning students, so long as you are satisfied with your accommodations. If you did not use your accommodations for the past semester, you may be asked to come in for a meeting.
