For Distance Education Students

Unity College is committed to making individuals with disabilities full participants in its programs, services, and activities in compliance with Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and all other state laws.

As such, Unity College provides accommodations to students who are diagnosed with learning disabilities, ADHD, or other learning challenges. Distance Education students who believe they may need a disability accommodation should initiate a review by contacting Associate Dean for Retention and Completion, Annie Chuprevich at achuprevich@unity.edu or (207) 590-7247. The Associate Dean will provide an Accessibility and Accommodations Request Form electronically to the student. In addition to completing that form, students will need to provide academic and/or medical documentation. These materials will be assessed, eligibility will be determined, and the Associate Dean will contact the student directly to discuss appropriate any appropriate accommodations and strategies. All inquiries and information are kept strictly confidential.
