Manhattan School of Music strives to provide all admitted students with the educational auxiliary aids and other reasonable accommodations which are necessary to permit a student with disabilities the opportunity to succeed in their studies.
The Dean of Students coordinates academic accommodations for students with disabilities, as well as any other student needs occasioned by disability status. Appropriate accommodations and/or academic adjustments will be provided on a case-by-case basis for students who register a disability with the Dean. Special housing accommodation requests should be directed to Samantha Tymchyn, Director of Residence Life, firstname.lastname@example.org.
All documentation related to a disability, including correspondence, accommodation requests, reports, and accommodation records, is considered confidential. We will not release any such records or identifying information to any outside entity without the student’s specific written permission, except in the case of a court order. Written or oral disclosure of specific disability-related information to Manhattan School of Music staff and faculty on a need-to-know-basis may be made only with the student’s written permission provided via the Release form.
In addition, students seeking disability services and academic accommodations must supply recent written documentation of a disabling condition from a qualified medical practitioner or educational psychologist that identifies the type of disability, describes the current level of functioning in an academic setting and lists recommended accommodations. Please allow two weeks from receipt of the documentation for the Dean to coordinate academic accommodations.
