Services for Students with Disabilities
     Williams Baptist University is an independent, non-profit, church-related institution which does not discriminate on the basis of disability in the provision of educational services.  Although Williams does not provide separate programs for students with disabilities, accommodations for a class presentation, evaluation, and access will be determined on a case-by-case basis once the student has disclosed a disability and appropriate documentation supporting the request for the accommodations has been provided to the College.  For further information, contact Ms. Aneita Cooper, Director of Counseling at 870-759-4184.  All students, regardless of disability, must meet the same admission and graduation requirements.

Academic Integrity
    Violations of academic integrity such as cheating and plagiarism may be handled at the discretion of the faculty member in consultation with the Academic Dean.  Before a penalty is assessed, the student’s overall disciplinary record will be reviewed by the Academic Dean.  Possible penalties for a first offense may include failure in the course in which the offense occurred.  A student may be dismissed from the College for a second offense.  All academic infractions become part of the student’s permanent disciplinary record filed in the Office of Student Affairs (Student Handbook, p 28).

Refund Policy and Requirements for Withdrawal and Return of Federal Financial Aid
     A student who officially withdraws from the University will be notified at the time of withdrawal as to whether further payments are due the University or whether a refund due the student.  The official withdrawal procedure begins in the Registrar’s office.  The rate of refund will be as follows:

Federal Student Financial Aid Penalties for Drug Law Violations
A conviction for any offense under any federal or state law involving the possession or sale of illegal drugs, during a period of enrollment when receiving federal aid, will result in the loss of eligibility for any Title IV, HEA grant, loan, or work study assistance. A conviction that was reversed, set aside, or removed does not count, nor does one received as a juvenile, unless tried as an adult.

The chart below illustrates the period of ineligibility for FSA funds, depending on whether the conviction was for sale or possession and whether the student had previous offenses. (A conviction for sale of drugs includes convictions for conspiring to sell drugs.)

Possession of
illegal drugs
Sale of illegal drugs
1st offense 1 year from date of conviction 2 years from date of conviction
2nd offense 2 years from date of conviction Indefinite period
3+ offenses Indefinite period

To regain eligibility, a person must successfully complete a drug rehabilitation program recognized by a federal, state or local government agency and the program must include at least 2 unannounced drug tests OR if the conviction was reversed, set aside or removed from the student’s record. If a student is denied eligibility for an indefinite period, the student can regain eligibility after completing a drug rehabilitation program as described previously or if the conviction is reversed, set aside, or removed from the student’s record so that fewer than two convictions for sale or three convictions for possession remain on the record. In such cases, the nature and dates of the remaining convictions will determine when the student regains eligibility
