I applied for accommodations when I returned to school at age 48, after being diagnosed the prior year. I was also diagnosed with Depression. The school never did anything with my application although I did everything necessary. They had everything they needed. The result is, yes, I graduated, but barely, with a GPA that precludes teacher certification, my aim from the beginning, or otherwise being employed as a teacher. I am now qualifying for a CDL license to be a limousine and bus driver.
I also have $150K bill of which none can be waived, because I am not employed as a teacher. Clearly I have been injured by the school's malfeasance.
I have been rebuffed at every point where I have sought assistance. Are "non-traditional" age adult students not entitled to the same protections as children? It seems like we are not. I guess by my age I should have been over it. I was under the impression that I was entitled to accommodation, but clearly I was wrong. What is the age where accommodation is no longer appropriate? Had I known this, I may not have wasted my time and incurred the massive debt that I have, much of which is because I had to repeat many of my classes.
Oh well, one lives and one learns, no pun intended, and then one suffers the economic consequences of a bad decision.
