Students with Disabilities

Students  seeking reasonable accommodations and   support  services  on  the  basis  of  a  diagnosed permanent or temporary disability   are  required  to  submit  documentation  to  verify  eligibility  under  Section  504  of  the Rehabilitation  Act  of  1973  and  the  Americans  with  Disabilities  Act  of  1990.

The Office of Disabilities Services seeks to provide support services that enable students with documented disabilities to maximize their academic participation and learning experience. The purpose for reasonable accommodations is to provide equal access to academic opportunities by reducing or eliminating disadvantages due to a disability.

The provision of all reasonable accommodations and services is based upon a case-by-case assessment of the impact of the student’s diagnosis on his/her academic performance and/or college participation at a given time in the student’s life. Reasonable accommodations do not guarantee specific outcomes or level of achievement. Students seeking information on the process and eligibility should contact the Office of Disabilities services through the Academic Resource Center.
