It is the student’s responsibility to notify faculty of the approved academic accommodations., including faculty members and the Dean of Students at another Claremont consortium college if the student is taking coursework there through cross-registration. Students with disabilities from other Claremont consortium colleges who are taking coursework at Pomona through cross-registration should contact Pomona’s Dean of Students office and request that the office obtain their accommodation-related records from the student’s home college. In the event of such a student request, and to the extent not already obtained, the Office of Student Affairs will request that the student’s home college provide Pomona and the student’s faculty members at Pomona with 1) certification that the student is an individual with a disability who is entitled to academic accommodation, 2) certification that the student has previously presented documentation to establish the student’s status as above, and 3) a description of the accommodations that have been and are being provided by the home college.
The accommodations should maintain the academic integrity of the courses and the academic program as a whole while attempting to meet the student’s needs. Pomona College does not routinely waive academic requirements for students with disabilities. Rather, our policy is to assist the student in his or her efforts to meet Pomona’s requirements by making reasonable accommodations.
As additional support, the Office of Student affairs will discuss resources available to students, such as Monsour Counseling and Psychological Services, Writing Fellows, and Pomona’s peer tutoring program.
