Policies and Procedures


Keystone College is committed to complying with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 by providing access to campus facilities and reasonable accommodations in programs, services and classroom activities. Students with disabilities who require accommodation should contact the Coordinator of Disability Services to initiate services.

According to federal law, a person with a disability is any person who: 1) has a physical or mental impairment; 2) has a record of such impairment; or 3) is regarded as having such an impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities. Major life activities include, but are not limited to, self-care, performing manual tasks, seeing, hearing, eating, sleeping, walking, standing, lifting, bending, speaking, breathing, learning, reading, concentrating, thinking, communicating, and working.


Confidentiality

All information regarding a student's disability, including documentation, is considered by law to be confidential. The Coordinator of Disability Services cannot release such information to any College personnel outside of the Student Success Center unless the student gives their consent.

Housing Accommodations

Keystone College strives to provide the best possible living environment for students with disabilities. When the appropriate documentation is presented and approved, students will be eligible to receive reasonable accommodations.

Programming Accommodations

Residence Life provides a variety of programs and events in the residence halls throughout the year. The College requires that any program that is held in a residence hall, that is not exclusive to a specific floor or wing, be held in a common area of the building that is accessible. If the specific hall does not have such an area, then the program must be held in a location that would accommodate those persons with disabilities.
