Disability Services

Introduction

Students with disabilities have graduated from Wilmington College with degrees from every academic area; they have demonstrated the value of persons with disabilities to our community and paved the way for others to follow.  The Office of Disability Services works with students and faculty to ensure that a disability will not be a barrier to equal opportunity and access to educational programs and services; however, the student’s own engagement in the accommodation process is a key factor to her or his success.  The Disability Services Handbook provides information about policies, procedures, and resources available at Wilmington College for students with disabilities.
