Accessible Education and Student Support

Welcome

Greetings from the Office of Accessible Education and Student Support.

We are committed to ensuring full access to both academic and co-curricular programming college wide for students with disabilities.  We also serve as a resource to faculty and staff and work collaboratively with campus partners to remove barriers to access and implement solutions.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.

Resources for Remote Learning and Accessibility

In response to the global pandemic of COVID-19, Bates College has decided to complete the remainder of the 2020 winter term via remote learning.  Please know that all accommodations remain in effect.  These are unfamilar and uncertain times for all of us.  We are holding all members of the Bates community in our thoughts.  If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us at accessibility@bates.edu or 207-786-6222.

  • Approved for text in alternate format? Send us your book list and proofs of purchase over the summer so you have the format you need before classes begin.
