Special Needs

BAC admits students living with various disabilities who are mainly sponsored by the Government. The Special Dispensation Program by the Government allows the Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC’s) to be admitted using a lower threshold.

During applications, students are required to indicate if they are living with any form of disability or indicate any disadvantages. After receiving sponsorship they register, attend orientations and apply for accommodation if they need it. They are given preference with appropriate supporting documentation. The College staff assists them throughout these processes where necessary.

Upon completion of the College registration process, they go through a confidential assessment to identify their specific needs to ensure that they are met before they could start attending lectures to avoid any inconvenience.

If there is need for any further assessments, they are referred to health facilities outside the College. Students living with disadvantages are offered guidance and counselling to ensure that they adapt well to the College life as young independent adults. They are constantly monitored to ensure that they have a pleasant stay in the College and perform to the best of their abilities academically.

The College strongly guards against any form of discrimination so the students are encouraged to actively participate in all College activities and report any form of abuse that they might encounter. BAC works hand in hand with different stakeholders dealing with disadvantaged students in an effort to make sure the students benefit from programmes designed by the Government for their own benefit like entrepreneurship opportunities upon graduation.
