Disability Support at Carl Sandburg College
Carl Sandburg College makes it a priority to be an environment in which students of all backgrounds can come to pursue their academic and professional goals. As such, we strive to be a campus that is disability-friendly, both in terms of the physical accessibility of our facilities and equal opportunity of access to learning materials and classroom experience. We seek to enable students with any history of disability, from physical disabilities to intellectual disabilities, anxiety, and attention deficits.
In compliance with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Disability Support at Carl Sandburg College seeks to make the classroom equally accessible to students with disabilities by providing students with tools and accommodations intended to remove barriers imposed by their unique disabilities.
Current or prospective students or visitors to campus who have questions about disability access to campus resources or who would like to request accommodations for a disability while on campus should contact the Coordinator of Academic Support Services at the contact information listed below. Similarly, students taking online classes or students who attend the Carthage campus should follow the same contact procedures.
Carl Sandburg College will not discriminate in any matter on the basis of the student’s sex, color, race, religion, creed, ancestry, national origin, physical or mental disability, sexual orientation, sexual identity or other protected group status.
Accommodations are available to all students, whether they attend the Galesburg campus, attend the Carthage campus, attend primarily or entirely online, or are dual credit students. Students who attend at the Carthage campus or online and dual credit students should be sure to see the section on accommodating distance students on our Information for New and Prospective Students page. Students who are concerned that they may have been discriminated against on the basis of a disability should refer to the section on our grievance procedure on our Student Rights to Accommodation page. Additional links to student rights to accommodation, campus accessibility information, and tutoring information are available to the left of this page under "More Information."
Additionally, students or guests of the college who would like to request disability accommodations for a visit to campus, be it a meeting or event, should fill out our request for non-academic accommodations at least five business days prior to the event.
