Babson College welcomes students with disabilities to participate fully in all aspects of college life. The mission of the Office of Disability Services is to collaborate and empower students with disabilities to coordinate support services and programs that enable equal access to an education and college life. Our policy is consistent with relevant governmental statues and regulations including those pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (amended in 2008), Title IX of the Federal Education Amendments of 1972 and Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
The Office of Disability Services is responsible for evaluating and coordinating services for students with disabilities. Reasonable accommodations are determined after consultation with the student and through review of the student's medical documentation. Students must initiate the accommodation process by meeting with the Director of the Learning Center to register with the Office of Disability Services. Available support services for students with documented disabilities include exam, classroom and medical housing accommodations.
For enrolled Babson College students, more information can be found regarding the Office of Disability Services’ policies and procedures on the Babson Hub.
