Americans with Disabilities Act

Federal law mandates that public colleges and universities may not discriminate on the basis of disability and that they must provide students with disabilities equal access to educational programs and facilities, both physical and electronic. It requires that public post secondary institutions provide reasonable accommodation to insure equal access for all students, while maintaining the same standards and requirements. For more information about Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and the Telecommunications Act of 1996, research Disability Law on the Internet, contact the U.S. Department of Education Office of Civil Rights, or contact the AS office on campus. Procedure for filing a formal grievance is published in the U.C.C. catalog, the yearly class schedule, as well as on the college website.
