Disability Accommodations Policy
- Students requesting JCU housing accommodations should identify themselves at the time of their housing application and no later than the housing deposit payment deadline by contacting [email protected].
- Students requesting disability-related academic accommodations should identify themselves at the time they pay their tuition deposit or housing placement fee by contacting the Coordinator for Disability-related Academic Accommodations (Prof. Carmen Franzese) at [email protected].
- Students requesting any other type of disability accommodation should identify themselves at the time they pay their tuition deposit or housing placement fee by contacting Dean of Academic Affairs Stefano Arnone directly at [email protected].
To determine feasible and appropriate recommendations, the university will need recent (no older than four years) detailed medical and/or psychological documentation of the disability to be accommodated. Documentation of an accommodations grant from another institution is neither necessary nor sufficient. The university assesses the accommodations that would be necessary for the student to complete a course or program at JCU. After this evaluation has taken place, students will be informed directly by the Academic Dean's Office of the accommodations that have been granted. In the event it appears that reasonable accommodations cannot be made for a student with a learning or other disability, the University will refund the application fee, the tuition deposit, and the housing placement fee.
John Cabot University cannot provide individual learning or other disability accommodations to students who do not follow the above guidelines.
