Apply to Disability Services

Lafayette College will approve disability related accommodations after all steps are completed and it is determined by the Disability Services Coordinator that accommodations are necessary in accordance with Section 504 and ADA.

1. Provide documentation by fax, email, mail, or by delivering it in person (during the academic year) to Scott Hall (3rd floor- front desk). Please see Guidelines for Documentation for more information regarding documentation standards.

2. Have an initial conversation with the Disability Services Coordinator.

  • Current students, please make an appointment for a face to face appointment during the school year (phone appointments are available when school is not in session and you are not on campus)
  • First year and transfer students, this is usually done by a phone appointment in the summer, and then followed up with a face-to-face appointment in the first two weeks of school.¬† During your face-to-face appointment, you will also receive your accommodation letters.

It is helpful to have the documentation prior to the initial conversation so that the Disability Services Coordinator is aware of your condition and can ask appropriate questions.

After meeting the above steps, accommodations become final during a conversation with the student.
