We are invested in your academic success and here to help you maintain your access to disability-related services. Whether you have registered with our office in a previous semester or are just considering services, our office is always receptive to discussing your needs.
Registering with the Office of Disability Services
Students wishing to be considered for accommodations and support services offered through the Office of Disability Services (ODS), must complete the following steps:
- Submit Intake Form. Once enrolled at Wheaton, students must begin their registration with ODS by completing an online registration form:
- Submit documentation of disability. Students must submit documentation of their disability in accordance with Whetaon’s Documentation Guidelines.
- Schedule an intake interview. Please call the Filene Center for Academic Advising & Career Services at (508) 286-8215 to schedule an appointment with the Coordinator of Disability Services. At the intake interview, students will provide information about how their disability impacts them in an educational setting. This will also be an opportunity for students to become acquainted with other services and supports that are offered through the College. Policies and procedures will be reviewed along with student, staff and ODS responsibilities.
You may have questions about how to request accommodations for entrance examinations to graduate school or how do I complete my foreign language requirement. We can help you navigate these procedures. Please read the guides listed on this page for more information on these subjects and contact the Eileen Bellemore, Coordinator of Academic Supports and Disability Services to make an appointment.
