Once you have fully registered and requested accommodations, you may receive an official accommodation letter.

Requests received after this timeframe will be honored whenever possible.

Title IX

Aquinas College is committed to providing a safe learning environment for all students that is free of all forms of discrimination and sexual harassment, including sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. If you (or someone you know) has experienced or experiences any of these incidents, please know that you are not alone. Resources and support are available. You can learn more at: https://www.aquinas.edu/sexual-assault-title-ix
Please be aware that all Aquinas College faculty members are “responsible employees”, which means that if you tell me about a situation involving sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking, I must share that information with the Title IX Coordinator. Although I have to make that notification, you will still have options about how your case will be handled including whether or not you wish to pursue a formal complaint. Our goal is to make you aware of the range of options available to you and have access to the resources you need.
If you wish to speak to someone confidentially (will not notify the Title IX Coordinator), you can contact the following offices/individuals:
1. AQ Counseling, Health and Wellness Services at (616) 632-2905 (landline)
