Academic Services is responsible for coordinating specific services and resources for students with disabilities at Cedar Crest College, working with students with disabilities and their staff and faculty to ensure that Section 504 and ADA regulations are fulfilled in a reasonable and timely manner on campus.

Students with disabilities should schedule a meeting with the Disability and Accommodation Specialist to discuss documentation requirements and accommodations. Call us at 610-606-4628 or contact our office at

Determining reasonable and appropriate accommodations is an interactive and evaluative process that involves consideration of both information provided by the student (student disclosure) and supplemental documentation.  Guidelines for supplemental documentation, that can be referred to by students and treating professionals when they are considering what information should be provided, can be found on this page under the heading "Disability Services Forms".  

All transportation requests are coordinated through the Disability and Accommodation Specialist.
