Disabled Student Services
All students requesting reasonable accommodations for special academic needs should:
- Provide professional documentation of disabilities to the Director of Academic Services.
- Request accommodations in writing and negotiate the accommodations with faculty and staff.
- Sign written release statements for the transfer of information to designated parties.
- In the event of a student's wishing to file a disability-related grievance, a written description of the complaint should be sent to the director of academic services, the dean of student development and the academic dean of the school in which the student is enrolled will review the grievance. The director of academic services may be reached at (704) 463-1360 ext. 2621.
The Wick Sharp Learning Center serves as the collection point for all documentation of physical handicaps and learning disabilities. Students should submit all relevant documentation to the coordinator of the center and schedule meetings to arrange for all eligible, "reasonable accommodations" provided by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.
The primary purpose of this handbook is to provide an initial orientation to all students of Pfeiffer University of the philosophy, procedures and practices of the university regarding reasonable accommodations for disabilities. This handbook is also intended to provide guidance to the students' parents, administrators, faculty and staff in their various roles of encouraging academic success for these students.
