beginning the process
Moravian College’s Accessibility Services Center (ASC) serves students with disabilities. Moravian College adheres to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 in ensuring accessibility of its programs and services. We welcome all students with disabilities to Moravian College and Moravian Theological Seminary.
The ASC staff provides reasonable accommodations and accessibility for students with disabilities enrolled in the College and Seminary. The center also serves as a resource for other College departments regarding disability support.
We value a collaborative, interactive process as we work with students to establish services. The ASC staff will work with you on an individual basis to determine reasonable accommodations that facilitate access to learning, living, and other experiences on campus. The information you provide is an essential component in the determination of reasonable accommodations and services. ASC staff determine approved accommodations after reviewing your request for support services, your past use of accommodations, and the likely impact of your disability on your educational experiences at Moravian College and Moravian Theological Seminary.
If you are a visitor and require access to any of our events or programs, please contact our the ASC by calling (610) 861-1401 or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
