There is no special admissions category for students with disabilities, and the office of Disability Support Services for Students is not involved in the admissions process.
Students are admitted using the same admissions procedures for non-disabled students. After students have been admitted and choose to self-identify a disability, the DSS office will assist with coordinating needed accommodations.
The Admissions Office considers a variety of criteria when reviewing all applications, including:
- College preparatory program of study
- High school average and SAT or ACT scores
Students may also choose to submit supporting credentials like letters of recommendation, evidence of special talents, involvement in activities and individual accomplishments. Because the college is committed to a liberal education for all undergraduates, preference is given to applicants who have pursued strong academic programs in English, Social Studies, Mathematics, Science and Foreign Languages.
Any questions concerning policy and procedure for admissions should be directed to the Admissions office at 673-3251.
