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 academic 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.
