Academic Regulations & Procedures

Disability Access and Accommodations

Carleton works to create and maintain an environment in which all people may learn, work, and live to their fullest potential. When there are barriers to access related to physical structures, academic programs, residential life, employment, and other campus activities, individuals with disabilities or a religious belief/practice can contact the offices responsible for addressing reasonable accommodation requests. An interactive process is used to gather information from the individual, discuss limitations created by the disability or religious belief/practice and discuss how best to respond to the need for accommodation. Usually current documentation from a health provider is required for a medical accommodation.

Prospective and current students with disabilities should contact Office of Accessibility Resources by calling 507-222-4464, emailing, or visiting the office at 107 Union Street to address accommodation or access concerns.

Disability accommodation needs of faculty and staff are addressed through Human Resources by calling 507-222-4174, emailing, filling out an employee accommodation form or visiting the office at 118 College Street. Visitors can contact a specific office or program for assistance or communicate with Accessibility Resources.

Carleton is guided by the Rehabilitation Act (1973), the Americans with Disabilities Act (1990), the ADA Amendments Act (2008), and Fair Housing Act in responding to the needs of students, faculty, staff, and visitors with disabilities.
