Disability Access and Accommodations

Carleton works to create and maintain an environment in which all people may learn, work, and live to their fullest potential. When there are barriers to access related to physical structures, academic programs, residential life, employment, and other campus activities, individuals with disabilities can contact the offices responsible for addressing reasonable accommodation requests. An interactive process is used to gather information from the individual, discuss limitations created by the disability and discuss how best to respond to the need for accommodation. Usually current documentation from a health provider is required.

Prospective and current students with disabilities should contact Disability Services by calling 507-222-5250, emailing, or visiting the office at 107 Union Street to address accommodation or access concerns. Disability accommodation needs of faculty and staff are addressed through Human Resources by calling 507-222-4174, emailing, or visiting the office at 118 College Street. Visitors can contact a specific office or program for assistance or communicate with Disability Services.

Carleton is guided by the Rehabilitation Act (1973), the Americans with Disabilities Act (1990), the ADA Amendments Act (2008), and Fair Housing Act in responding to the needs of students, faculty, staff, and visitors with disabilities.
