Disability Services

Kettering University provides disability services in compliance with the American with Disabilities Act (1990) and its amendments, along with state and local regulations regarding students, employees, and applicants with disabilities. Under these laws, no qualified individual with a disability shall be denied access to participation in services, programs, and/or activities at Kettering University.  In carrying out Kettering‘s policy regarding disabled students, employees and applicants, we recognize mobility, sensory, medical, psychological, and learning disabilities.  We attempt to provide reasonable accommodations for these disabilities for all students who meet the criteria described in the Americans with Disabilities Act. 

Any Kettering student who has been diagnosed with a physical, medical, psychological, or learning disability, or suspects that s/he may have one, must contact the Wellness Center.  The staff will evaluate the required documentation in support of the claim of disability and make an assessment of a student‘s needs on a case-by-case basis.  The Wellness Center will then make recommendations for the appropriate services and accommodations necessary to meet the legal requirements as required by law. The Center will inform faculty and staff who may be responsible for providing the services and/or accommodations.  Each term, students must meet with each professor to arrange individual accommodations.

Prospective students in the admissions process should contact the Wellness Center as soon as possible to discuss appropriate documentation needed to verify a disability and to identify the type of services, accommodations, and adaptive equipment that may be necessary.
