There are three legal mandates that protect students with disabilities from discrimination and guarantee the student equal access to all aspects of University life. These are Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (PL 93-112), the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, known as ADA (PL 1001-336), and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments of 2008 (PL 110-325).

In response to these laws, OSWD is dedicated to providing an array of services for students with disabilities, as well as assisting faculty and staff in implementing disability accommodations in the classroom and throughout campus. Our goal is to provide all appropriate accommodation to guarantee equal access.

Faculty are required by law to provide “reasonable accommodations” for students with disabilities that lead to equal access and opportunities on campus.

Students are responsible for disclosing to faculty, and to OSWD, their need for accommodations, and for providing adequate documentation of those needs.
