WELCOME TO DISABILITY SUPPORT
Welcome to High Point University where we are committed to providing students with disabilities equal access to their college education and university life. We will help advocate for students by providing and coordinating appropriate accommodations for qualified students.
High Point University will not discriminate in the recruitment, admission, educational process or treatment of students with disabilities. In making reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities, the University will consider educational modifications, housing accommodations, architectural barriers, and other services available to all students.
At the beginning of each term, a student must request their accommodation letters for faculty, staff and campus officials. The student will deliver the accommodation letters in a timely manner prior to the need for the accommodation. Accommodations are not retroactive, so students are encouraged to request accommodation letters the first week of classes. Accommodations are in place only after the student notifies the instructor and discusses arrangements to be made.
*Accommodations approved by the University will be made available at no cost to the student.
Each spring during Early Registration Days, a special program entitled, “Students with Disabilities: Questions and Answers You Need for College” is presented to help incoming students and their parents understand the disability process for High Point University. The 2013 Early Registration dates are: March 22-23; April 19-20; June 21-22; and July 15. Programs are held on Friday mornings of each weekend [March 22/ April 19/ June 22]. Check the Early Registration Day schedule for specific details. Contact your admissions counselor for Early Registration details.
