Going the Extra Mile

At Dean College, we strongly believe in providing the best educational services to each of our students. Along these lines, we offer learning and academic support as well as auxiliary aids and services to qualified students with disabilities through the Office of Accessibility Services. 

Our mission is to advocate for a campus environment that meets the needs of students with disabilities. The college provides its full support and a variety of accommodations to any qualified student with a documented disability, executive DSS Faculty Resources functioning disorder, sensory processing or nonverbal learning issues. 

Accessibility related requests for accommodations and services are evaluated individually, based on documentation and completion of the registration process.

Registration Information

Accessibility accommodations are arranged only through Accessibility Services Office. Registration with Accessibility Services is on a voluntary, self-identifying basis. Students must provide documentation of the disability from an appropriate licensed professional. Once the required documentation has been provided, the student will meet with the Accessibility Student Services Coordinator to discuss reasonable accommodations. 

Students who are seeking accommodations from the Accessibility Services Office should complete the Dean College Accommodation and Services Intake Form.

For more information, contact Karley Batalon, Accessibility Services Coordinator at 508-541-1768 

Accessibility Services also refers students to other offices and resources on campus, including the Morton Family Learning Center, Residence Life, Counseling, Health Services, Robbins Family Center for Advising and Career Planning, Academic Affairs, and Student Activities. Accessibility Services also works closely with faculty and administrators to implement reasonable accommodations and assist students in participating in college activities.
