Access and Disability Services provides academic accommodations for students with disabilities. The University abides by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and other legal mandates that stipulate qualified students with disabilities receive accommodations to provide equal access to programs and opportunities at the University. If a student has a documented disability, reasonable and appropriate academic accommodations for students who qualify under the law are available. Disabilities may be defined by the following:
- learning disabilities
- health impairments
- physical limitations
- psychiatric disabilities
Students should set an appointment with professional staff at ADS to review the nature and history of the disability as well as present concerns related to the educational environment.
