Student SuccessThe Office of Student Success provides services to students in two main ways.
Academic Disability Accommodation
Belhaven University offers students disability accommodation in accordance with the guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The student must make his or her disability known to the Office of Student Success (located in the Wynn Kenyon Think Center) and must provide current documentation, within 3 years, of the disability from an appropriate licensed professional and complete the Belhaven ADA Request Form for accommodation. The student must provide such a request at least two weeks prior to the beginning of each semester for which the accommodation is requested. Approved accommodations will be made within a reasonable time period after completion of the official request.
Grievance Procedure for Disabled Students
Belhaven University has adopted an internal grievance procedure providing for the prompt and equitable resolution of student complaints alleging any action prohibited by regulations implementing the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and other pertinent federal, state, and local disability anti-discrimination laws. For grievances related to academic accommodations, The Dean of Student Development shall serve as the Complaint “Coordinator”.
For grievances related to non-academic accommodations, the policy in the student handbook
The Kilt should be followed.
