Marietta College complies with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act regarding non-discrimination against persons with disabilities. Any person having inquiries concerning Marietta College's compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 should contact the 504 Compliance Officer, Academic Resource Center, Marietta College, Marietta, Ohio 45750, (740) 376-4700, who has been designated by the College to coordinate efforts to comply with Section 504.
The College seeks to offer support to all students and strives to make reasonable accommodations for individuals with documented disabilities. All campus services for students with disabilities are coordinated through the College's Academic Resource Center (known as the "ARC"). Documentation of a student’s disability from a licensed psychologist, psychiatrist, or physician must be provided to the ARC to establish recommended accommodations.
In addition to reviewing documentation to facilitate arrangements for specific classroom accommodations, ongoing individualized guidance is available from the ARC's Disabilities Specialist to include referrals to outside agencies for testing and assessment as necessary. Additional services available include tutoring, study skills assistance, access to assistive technology (such as the Kurzweil 3000 Scan/Read System, and the Dragon Naturally Speaking Voice Dictation Software) and other personalized services based upon documented needs.
Students needing assistance with disability-related issues should contact the ARC (Andrews Hall, 740-376-4700, firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information. In addition, students are strongly encouraged to discuss individual class-specific needs with each faculty member at the outset of each academic course.
