3,052: Reasonable Accommodations for the Academic Needs of Students with Disabilities

Revised: July 2012

It is university policy, in compliance with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act, 1990 (as amended) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, 1973, to provide reasonable accommodations to meet the academic needs of students with disabilities. The Disability Resource Center (DRC) is authorized by the President to determine and coordinate such accommodations. Failure to honor an institutional reasonable accommodation authorized by the DRC is a violation of university policy and federal regulation and may result in disciplinary proceedings and sanctions as provided in the NSHE Handbook (Title 2, Chapter 6.6.2(m) or Title 4, Chapter 8).
