Endicott seeks to provide a supportive environment for students and is committed to providing equal access to educational programs and services to our students with disabilities. Students requesting accommodations must self-identify and provide appropriate documentation of their disability.

If you are a prospective student, please contact the Admissions office with questions.

Endicott Accessibility Policy

Endicott College, through the Division of Academic Success and the Center for Accessibility Services, seeks to provide reasonable accommodations to qualified individuals as stated by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 Title III, and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA). Accommodations provide qualified individuals with an equal opportunity to obtain the same benefit or privileges as those available to a similarly situated individual without a disability. The law does not require institutions to waive specific courses or academic requirements considered essential to a particular program or degree if doing so would fundamentally alter the nature of the program or the degree.

Students requesting accommodations must self-identify and provide appropriate documentation of their disability. Eligibility for reasonable and appropriate accommodations will be determined on an individual basis. 

Examples of potential accommodations at Endicott College include, but are not limited to: Alternative Text Materials, Assistive Technology, Testing Accommodations, Note Taking Assistance, and Screen Readers/Scribes.

Frequently Asked Accessibility Questions from Students

  • How do I request accommodations?

    To request an accommodation, please complete our online request form (you will have to provide your Endicott email and Endicott email password to begin the process).  If you have problems with the form, please contact Christy Galatis, M.Ed. (Director of Accessibility Services) at 978-998-7746 or the Division of Academic Success Front Desk at 978-998-7769 and someone will be happy to assist you.

  • What documentation is required?

    We will consider any information (including, but not limited to, your description of your needs; records of past accommodations and services from high school or another college; formal psychological or medical evaluations, letters from past health, education, or service providers) when evaluating requests for accommodation. This information is needed so that we can develop an understanding of how your conditions are likely to affect you. Please note that any documentation submitted must be completed by a qualified professional (i.e. medical doctor, psychologist, counselor, etc.). Please feel free to use the provided documentation:

    Disability Verification Form - Dietary

    Disability Verification Form - Housing

    Disability Verification Form - Academic

  • Will I receive the same accommodations I received in high school?

    There are differences between high school and college, such as the disclosure of disability, documentation and registration as a student with a disability, accommodations and services available, and student responsibilities in requesting and using accommodations. Accommodations received in high school that are necessary according to provided documentation will be provided.

  • How do I file a grievance or complaint regarding my accommodations?

    Endicott has also adopted an internal ADA/504 Grievance Procedure providing for prompt and equitable resolution of complaints regarding any action prohibited by the ADA or Section 504. To file a complaint, please email the Interim Dean of Academic Success, Dr. Allison Muise, at or contact (Phone) 978-232-2298.

  • Is my disability shared with my faculty?

    Disability information is shared with staff through a Letter of Accommodation at the beginning of each semester. Faculty will only know a student is allowed accommodations, not the student’s specific disability.

  • Do I need to submit a new request every semester?

    Yes, you will need to submit a new request for note taking accommodations each semester. However, a new Letter of Accommodation will be sent to your instructors before the beginning of each semester on your behalf regarding all of your approved accommodations.

Non-academic Accommodations

Non-academic accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis, once a student contacts us to request an accommodation, along with medical documentation, which outlines in detail the student's condition.  Supporting documentation must be recent to determine the current and substantial impact on activities of daily living. Additionally, the documentation must establish a direct link between the accommodation request and the impairment.

  • Assistance Animals

    Documentation should confirm that the animal is necessary for the individual's health and well-being on campus. If you have any questions or would like to learn more, please contact the Center for Accessibility Services.

  • Dietary Accommodations

    College policy maintains that all resident students must participate in one of the meal plan options. To be considered for a medically-based dietary accommodation, students must submit documentation that clearly supports a meal plan modification.

  • Accessible Housing

    Endicott College is committed to providing a residential experience for students that encourages active participation and engagement in the campus community. The residential experience at Endicott offers students the opportunity to select from a variety of living arrangements in a number of distinct dwellings with varying amenities and support services. A student who desires to live on campus, but requires some level of accommodation because of a medical disability, may request consideration of those accommodations through the disability housing process.
