Admission is based on students ability to meet the academic standards requisite to each Willamette University program; applicants are evaluated without regard to disability. Federal law prohibits pre admission inquiry.
2. Creating Accessible and Inclusive Meetings or Events
Planning ahead for inclusion can help to create an event that is welcoming to everybody. Here are some guidelines to consider when organizing meetings and events: Top Ten Tips for Creating Accessible and Inclusive Space.
3. Preparing for Post-secondary Education
The Office of Civil Rights offers a publication, Students with Disabilities Preparing for Post-secondary Education: Know Your Rights and Responsibilities, which describes differences in your rights and responsibilities as a university student versus a high school student.
4. Academic Support
All CAS students are eligible for individual consultations about study strategies, time management, academic expectations, and effective communication. Free tutoring is also available through Academic Support.
5. Field Placement Positions (Internships)
Students considering a practicum off campus need to discuss accommodation needs in a timely manner with the Accessible Education Services office and practicum supervisor. The student should request a position description that clearly identifies the essential functions of the field placement position. Accommodations become a collaborative process utilizing multiple resources.
6. International Education
Willamette University offers study abroad and off-campus study opportunities in the form of semester and summer programs. All students are encouraged to consider participating in off campus studies and internships. Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to plan early for this opportunity as host sites are not necessarily experienced in providing accommodations. It would be prudent to include the Accessible Education Services office in the process to assist in reviewing the primary activities of the program and the overall living conditions to determine compatibility with needs.
For more information, visit International Education.
7. Parking Permits/Campus Safety
Students holding a DMV-issued permit, may present that to the Office of Public Safety with a request to purchase an all-campus permit that will allow parking in designated accessible spaces on campus. You will be ticketed if you do not have the appropriate Willamette University tag. Students experiencing any type of mobility problem are welcome to contact Campus Safety at Salem at 503-370-6911 and Campus Safety at PNCA at 503-621-2061 regarding on-campus transportation options.
8. Library Assistance
For your convenience and to facilitate the library staff in serving all patrons equally, students seeking additional assistance should schedule an appointment with the library. Scheduling an appointment will guarantee that you obtain the assistance you need when you want it. Library staff are available Monday-Friday. Patrons with disabilities in need of more assistance than the library staff is able to provide should contact the Director of Accessible Education Services.
