Reid Temple Bible College will provide reasonable accommodations, auxiliary aids, and services to qualified students that are differently-abled or with disabilities in order to ensure effective participation and success. Students do not have to disclose a disability to RTBC if services are not requested.
These services comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA), and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which mandate program accessibility for students with disabilities in postsecondary institutions that receive federal funds. The college is obligated to provide reasonable accommodations, auxiliary aids, and services to qualified students with disabilities to ensure their effective participation and success in all college programs and services. Students do not have to disclose a disability to the college if they are not requesting services.
Students with documented disabilities may request academic accommodations through the Student Liaison Officer or Chief Academic Officer. To schedule an appointment contact the Student Liaison Officer (Rev. Beverly Barnfield). To ensure reasonable accommodations can be arranged before the semester begins, timely submission is crucial.
To support reasonable accommodations; students who choose to self-identify must provide signed physician’s documentation of their disability, completed Disability Disclosure Intake Form, and Course Access Letter prior to the start of the semester. Late submission of the requested physician’s documentation and designated forms may result in a delay of accommodations.
Persons must also register, pay for courses, and submit a paid tuition bill to the registrar before beginning classes.
