The Dean's Office and the Office of Student Life at Bennington College work closely with all students to provide reasonable accommodation for documented physical and learning disabilities. Students wishing to apply for disability accommodation must complete the Disability Accommodation Request Form prior to the start of term. A request for an accommodation should be as specific as possible and be augmented with appropriate recent professional documentation (within the past three years). The Dean's Office evaluates requests, makes accommodations as needed, and works with students and faculty to clarify the process. The Office of Student Life evaluates requests and makes accommodations for students with physical disabilities. Additional information about disabilities accommodation may be found at the Americans with Disabilities Act website.
