General Information Overview

If a student qualifies for accommodation, an institution is prohibited from discriminating against the student in the areas of recruitment, application to programs, testing, interviewing, or acceptance. In summary, this means a student is to have access to programs and services of an institution regardless of the disability and is to be provided accommodations, as appropriate, to have access. Institutions, however, are not required to provide accommodations that fundamentally alter the essential qualities of a course or program.
