Student Accessibility Services

Arial view of Rhodes College

Student Accessibility Services (SAS) views disability as an integral part of diversity at Rhodes College. Through collaboration, we ensure students with disabilities experience access and inclusion in their educational programs through accommodations or other modifications.  

Approximately 23% of Rhodes students are currently registered with SAS. This population includes students with documented conditions which substantially limit one or more major life activities.

  • Learning and Attentional Disorders  
  • Mental Health Impairments 
  • Chronic Health Impairments 
  • Mobility Impairments  
  • Sensory Impairments
  • Developmental Disorders
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries 
  • Temporary Impairments 

In accordance with the provisions of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended, SAS determines and provides reasonable accommodations on a case-by-case basis for otherwise qualified students who have demonstrated a need for these services. 

All college accommodation requests are the responsibility of the student. The chart below outlines key differences between high school and college.
