Accomodations for Persons with Disabilities

Office of General Counsel

Accommodations for Persons with Disabilities


The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504) prohibit discrimination on the basis of a qualified disability.  These laws protect individuals with disabilities in several areas, including employment, education, and public services.  Persons with qualified disabilities at the University may request reasonable accommodations in order to continue their academic pursuits, perform their jobs or participate in University activities.
