Students with disabilities have a right to reasonable accommodations in order to fully participate in the post-secondary educational experience. Students with disabilities are encouraged to advocate for themselves to the extent possible and to disclose the disability and submit necessary documentation to the Disability Services Office. Together, the Director of Disability Services and the student will determine reasonable modifications based upon the impact of the student’s disability. Disability Services provides support and assistance in determining what modifications are best suited to each individual. Services are provided to qualified students on a case-by-case basis.
