Inclusive Education Policy
The institute is committed to equal opportunity admission based on merit to all students with or without disability. The College has a support service available for students with disabilities as also an Inclusion Cell that looks at concerns and solutions for effective Inclusive Education practices.
Inclusive Education Accommodation Request Process:
It is imperative for students with disabilities who seek to have any accommodations during their course of study to complete the process of submitting the Accommodation Intake Form within the first 15 days from having secured admission (for new students) and the Accommodation Continuation Form within 15 days from the start of the new academic year (For Continuing students). Any delays in not meeting the deadline to submit the form will be taken as the student not needing any accommodation. It should be kept in mind that in the event that the student has not filled the accommodation intake form, the college is then not mandated to provide any accommodation services.
Any student seeing accommodation needs to seek an appointment with Ms Neha Trivedi, Co-ordinator, Students with Disability, XRCVC as soon as possible on grant of admission/beginning new academic year.
After the meeting with the co-ordinator the student is to fill the Intake/Continuation Form within 15 days of granting of admission/start of academic year. The same has to be downloaded from the college website (xaviers.edu) under the Inclusive Education Tab and submitted to Ms Neha Trivedi, XRCVC.
Last date for submitting the forms for academic year 18-19:
F.Y.J.C and First Year Degree College: 15 days from date of admission granted
S.Y.J.C/Second Year & Third Year Degree College: 20th June 2018
The student will be granted their accommodation letter after being passed by the Inclusion Cell, St. Xavier’s College by the Co-ordinator.
The student is then expected to go and share a copy of their letter with all their HODs, teachers, Controller Examiner and the Resource Centre Coordinator within 7 days of them being issued the letter. If the student fails to share this letter with respective authorities within 7 days of its issue to them, the college may not be in a position to provide the support granted.
