Rocky Mountain College is committed to providing courses, programs, services and facilities that are accessible to students with disabilities. To identify and provide the necessary support services as soon as possible, students with disabilities are encouraged to complete a Services for Academic Success (SAS) application when they apply for admission to RMC, or as soon as possible after enrolling.
SAS offers a comprehensive program of individualized services to accommodate the needs of students with disabilities. Typical services may include advocacy, test-taking accommodations, personal note-takers, remedial math and writing courses, and personal or drop-in tutoring. Eligible students are assigned an SAS advisor, with whom they work one-on-one to discuss their personal educational needs and monitor progress.
Students with disabilities are responsible for identifying themselves, providing appropriate documentation and requesting reasonable accommodations. Diagnostic services are not available through SAS.
Disability documentation needs to be submitted to, and approved by, the Director of Students for Academic Success before any accommodations can be arranged.
The following documentation is needed to determine eligibility for modifications or accommodations:
- A detailed evaluation from a professional qualified to diagnose a disability. The evaluation should have been completed within the last three years. Evaluations may be from a licensed clinical psychologist, school psychologist, learning-disability specialist, medical doctor, and/or neuropsychologist;
- For learning disabilities, evaluations should include test results with composite and subtest scores for intelligence, reading, math, written language, processing skills, and speech and language when appropriate;
- A report that states the disability as a diagnosis; and
- A current IEP or 504 Plan with stated modifications and accommodations.
All documentation is confidential and should be submitted to:
Dr. Jane Van Dyk, Assoc. Vice President
