Disability Services

Keuka College provides a variety of services for students with documented disabilities. In addition to diagnostic teaching and individual and group tutoring, students can access readers, alternative texts, scribes, alternative testing, note-taking services, and advocacy counseling. Students should contact the Office of Disability Services for more details. 

For Students

If you are a student seeking support services and/or special accommodations related to a documented disability, it is your responsibility to voluntarily and confidentially disclose information regarding the nature of your disability to Office of Disability Services. Appropriate academic and housing adjustments are determined based on the student’s individual needs.

Students requesting accommodations should make requests as early as possible, and no later than two weeks prior to the start of the semester so the College may have sufficient time to review requests and provide appropriate accommodations.

Students may be required to provide documentation of a current disability. The College does not automatically receive information regarding your disability from your high school. 

Please contact Dr. Chris Alterio with any questions you may have.
