ADA Compliance

Reasonable and Appropriate  Accommodations

Reasonable and appropriate accommodations are those that minimize or eliminate the impact of a disability, allowing the individual equal access to the University’s courses, programs, and activities.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) mandates that an institution must make reasonable accommodations for those individuals with a qualified disability. A reasonable accommodation is one that does not require a substantial change in curriculum or alteration of an essential element of the program or position.
