Baptist Health College Little Rock recognizes and complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 which prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities. For the purposes of Baptist Health College Little Rock compliance, a “qualified individual with a disability" is one who, with or without reasonable accommodations or modifications, meets the essential eligibility requirements for participation in the program. Essential function standards are published in the school catalog and the student handbook under each specific program.

We are available to advise and counsel applicants and students who qualify under the ADA, including students with intellectual disabilities. We strive to provide reasonable accommodations for students. To request accommodations, contact the Counseling Office 3 weeks prior to the term you are to be enrolled in, and provide current documentation which should include:

  • A clear, diagnostic statement identifying the disability, date of the current diagnostic evaluation, and the date of the original diagnosis
  • A description of the diagnostic criteria and/or diagnostic test(s) used
  • A description of the current functional impact of the disability
  • Treatments, medications, and assistive devices/services currently prescribed or in use
  • A description of the expected progression and/or stability of the impact of the disability over time
  • The credentials of the diagnosing professional
  • Any additional information which would help support and identify the need for requested academic accommodations
