The Assistant Director for Educational Access assists students with documented disabilities by designing plans with reasonable accommodations for equal access to their educational program, serving as a resource by providing consultation to students, faculty, and staff when implementing an accommodation plan.

A useful link that addresses college transition issues and students with disabilities is www.ed.gov/ocr. A publication entitled "Students with Disabilities Preparing for Post-secondary Education: Know Your Rights and Responsibilities" is available through this link.

Medical  Single Housing
Students may apply for a medical single within our on-campus housing program. In order for us to establish whether a student qualifies for a medical single, we require an assessment and diagnosis of the student. A disability is defined as a physical or mental impairment that limits one or more major life activities such as eating, breathing, sleeping, and more.

Received documentation is kept confidential. This information is only released and/or discussed on a need-to-know basis and is subject to FERPA guidelines. No information concerning inquiries about accommodations or the documentation will be released and/or discussed without consent from the individual requesting the medical single. Please find a Medical Single Housing Request Form here and visit the housing website to learn more about medical single housing .  Medical Single Housing forms should be sent to Deborah Braden, dbraden@warren-wilson.edu or faxed to 828-771-3780.
