In accordance with the Americans and Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and its amendments, individuals with disabilities are protected from discrimination and assured services and accommodations that provide equal access to the activities and programs of the university. To establish that an individual is covered under the ADA, documentation must indicate that the disability substantially limits a major life activity. Major life activities may include concentrating, hearing, thinking, speaking, communicating and learning. Documentation submitted should:
- Be appropriate to determine eligibility
- Demonstrate a current substantial impact of one or more major life activities
- Support the need for any requested accommodation services and/or auxiliary aids
Students interested in requesting academic accommodations must contact the appropriate campus office to begin the application process. Please be advised that the eligibility determination process and, once approved, implementation of accommodation services could take several weeks. It is important for students to be proactive and initiate the process early in order to ensure that accommodations are in place by the time the subscription period begins.
