We are committed to ensuring that all qualified students have equal access to Rhodes academic and non-academic programs and can participate fully in all aspects of student life. Our goal is to create an environment of equal access for students with documented disabilities including:

  • Learning and attention disorders
  • Psychiatric disabilities
  • Mobility impairments
  • Sensory impairments
  • Chronic health impairments

In accordance with the provisions of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and expanded by Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), our Office of Student Disability Services (SDS) offers assistance to students in the form of accommodations, advising and referral services on a case-by-case basis for otherwise qualified students who have demonstrated a need for these services.

It is your responsibility to follow through on all requests for accommodations so that we can determine appropriate accommodations for your documented disability. For an in-depth description of Rhodes’ policies and procedures, and the services and accommodations available through the SDS, please refer to our handbook—Guide to Services & Accommodations (PDF). And don’t forget that we have a Director of Student Disability Services on campus to answer your questions and help you navigate the procedure to receive appropriate accommodations.
