Request for Accommodation Based on Documented Disability

If you are requesting accommodation based on a disability, please make your request in writing using the Lakewood College Disability Disclosure Form to disclose your disability in accordance with College requirements. Accommodations are authorized by Disability Services staff through an interactive process, which may include a combination of the student’s account of disability or its impact, observations of the Disability Services staff member, and supporting documentation provided by the student.

Please understand that accommodations are not retroactive, and the determination of reasonable accommodation resides with Disability Services staff.

Lakewood College requirements for documentation are based on the Best Practices published by Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD).

So earn your degree on your terms. Enroll in Lakewood College, and get a world-class education right from the comfort of your own home!
