A person with a disability is one who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity, has a record or history of such impairment, or is regarded as having such an impairment. (See “The Laws“)
Prospective students must meet all criteria for admission as established by the Office of Undergraduate or Graduate Admission. It is illegal for the admission office to ask about disability status. Students with a documented disability are advised to contact the Department of Disability Services for Students.
Please see the Documentation Guidelines.
Reasonable accommodations that support a student’s potential to meet with academic success and do not fundamentally alter a course or a degree requirement will be provided to students who disclose to professors. Academic accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis, substantiated by submitted documentation.
