Students with disabilities affecting their academic work may receive reasonable accommodations through the Office of the Provost. Students seeking accommodations based on documented learning disabilities must contact the Provost at (870) 307-7332.
A student with a disability affecting academic performance initiates the process by submitting a written description of his/her disability and the nature of its effect on his/her academic performance to the Provost.
In order to be considered eligible for accommodations, a student must submit the following to the Office of the Provost:
Evaluations must include a diagnostic statement of a specific disability and its effect on academic performance, and recommendations for accommodations available through the resources of Lyon College. Each semester a student must request in writing that the recommendations for accommodations be made available confidentially to his or her designated instructors. The written request should be filled with the Office of the Provost.
The Provost, who serves as the ADA/504 coordinator, will review students' evaluations and, at the request of the student, will inform instructors of appropriate accommodations.
Instructors make reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities in order to allow them the opportunity, consistent with their diagnostic profile, to learn course content and to subsequently demonstrate mastery of course content.
Lyon is more than just a college. It's a community distinguished by its academic curriculum, unique honor and social systems, and award-winning professors.
