Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibits discrimination based on disability in programs or activities receiving federal financial assistance. The Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability. Learn more about Disability Law.
The accommodations process is designed to be collaborative. Once you are registered with Student Disability Services, the Student Disability Services staff will work with you to facilitate reasonable and appropriate accommodations that will not fundamentally alter the academic standards of your courses. Please be aware that we cannot offer retroactive accommodations.
Students requesting accommodations for a disability or chronic health issue must provide documentation of a condition that has a current functional impact and meets the current legal definition of a disability. We recognize that each student's situation is unique. For details, please refer to our Documentation Guidelines.
We encourage students to work closely with Student Disability Services, should any concerns arise with specific accommodations. If a disagreement arises concerning requested accommodations, the student may appeal the decision. For details, please see the Appeal Process.
