Students are admitted to Converse on the basis of academic credentials and additional information submitted to the Admissions Office. A student who feels a disability makes achieving representative scores on the SAT or ACT Tests unlikely may apply through a high school guidance counselor for accommodations on these tests. Students that receive accommodations either in high school or on standardized tests are not necessarily eligible for accommodations in higher education under the ADA or Section 504.
Applicants are not required to disclose any disability on their applications for admission to Converse. Once admitted, however, a student seeking reasonable academic accommodations for a disability should immediately contact the Assistant Dean of Academic Support and Accommodations at 864.577.9027 to obtain an accommodation form. Residential students seeking physical accommodations for a disability should contact the Dean of Students at 864.596.9016 upon notification of acceptance, so reasonable provisions can be made before their arrival on campus.
