Department of Accessibility & Learning Excellence (DALE)

The College of Idaho seeks to provide an educational environment that is accessible to the needs of students with disabilities.

The College provides reasonable services to enrolled students who have a documented permanent or temporary, physical, psychiatric, medical, learning, intellectual, or sensory disability that qualifies the student for accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act or section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

The Department of Accessibility & Learning Excellence at The College of Idaho:

  • Seeks to ensure that all programs, services and facilities are accessible to students on a non-discriminatory basis.
  • Is committed to providing our students with disabilities the accommodations and support they need to have a rewarding and successful experience.
  • Fosters a campus culture of acceptance, inclusion, and positive attitudes that respects the diversity of our student body.
  • Reviews and maintains disability-related documentation.
  • Considers all disclosures confidential – they will never appear on a student’s college record.

If you have or think you may have, a disability that impacts your performance as a student, you are encouraged to arrange support services and/or accommodations through the Accessibility & Learning Excellence office located in the PEAK center in Hendren Hall. Even if you do not think your disability will impact academics- it is in students’ best interest to disclose any disability to this office. You may contact the Department of Accessibility & Learning Excellence with any questions or requests.

Reasonable academic accommodations may be provided to students who submit appropriate and current documentation of their disability. Accommodations can be arranged only through this process and are not retroactively applied.
