Students with Disabilities

Students with learning disabilities, hearing impairments, speech impairments, or other disabilities that may affect their ability to fulfill a requirement of the school should contact Disability Services for Students prior to registering. Program requirements will not be waived for students with disabilities; however, some modifications may be made within specific courses. Students seeking such modifications should do so early in their academic career to ensure timely progress to degree completion.

Federal laws that govern the provision of accommodations and assistance to students with disabilities at the college level are quite different from those that apply to students in high school. College students with disabilities and their parents should become familiar with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 to better understand what their rights and responsibilities are as a disabled college student.
