Overview

Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended, prohibit discrimination against individuals with disabilities.

According to these laws, no “otherwise” qualified person with a disability shall, solely by reason of the student's disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity of a public entity.

“Qualified,” with respect to postsecondary education, means “a person who meets the academic and technical standards requisite to admission or participation in the education program or activity.”

Student accommodations are determined on an individual basis, based on each student’s unique needs in relation to the student's disability. Human Resources coordinates faculty and staff accommodations.

Grievance Procedure

Students who have a problem or concern pertaining to accommodations should contact a Disability Services staff member immediately. Most issues are successfully resolved at this level. If the accommodation issue is not resolved to the student’s satisfaction, the student may appeal to the Dean of Students. If a student feels discriminated against, please contact Lisa Steffensen, Dean of Students.
