Americans with Disabilities Act/Section 504

Students with disabilities enjoy the same rights and privileges as all other students as mandated by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Act of 1990 which prohibits educational institutions from discriminating against an individual based on disability. Individuals with disabilities are entitled to reasonable accommodations and right to privacy as to information regarding a disability. Such information shall only be immediately accessed by the Center for Student Accessibility (CSA) staff. Students who apply for services from the CSA office will be fully informed as to how this information will be used. The use of information will be limited to only that which is needed, usually to ensure that the College provides reasonable accommodation(s) to the student. If a student elects to have persons other than the CSA staff receive the information, such request must be in writing.
