With whom and/or when you share that you have a disability is a personal decision. At Beloit College, if you self-identify as having a disability to any employee (except the Health Center and Counseling Center staff) in any format (personal conversation, advisor questionnaire, email), employees are to share that information with the Director of the Learning Enrichment and Disability Services Office. The Director then reaches out to make you aware of the ways in which the College can provide equal access for you.
Documentation is to be delivered directly to the Director and the Director will only share this information with others on a “need to know” basis (unless it is an emergency or the student is a threat to self or others). Students that are on medications for any reason, or have a mental or physical disability, are also strongly encouraged to disclose this information to the Health Center and/or Counseling Center. Prospective students that send documentation to the Admissions Office will likely find that the information has been passed on to the Director of the Learning Enrichment and Disability Services Office.
If you are a prospective student to Beloit College, you are encouraged to arrange a meeting with the Director to discuss your situation. Students with disabilities who are certain that they will be attending Beloit College (or are attending the College) should contact the Director as soon as possible to discuss available services and accommodations.
