Welcome to Student Accessibility Services

Assumption University supports and recognizes the standards set forth in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, and its amendments, which are designed to eliminate discrimination against qualified individuals with disabilities. Assumption is committed to providing equity, access, and inclusion of all students with disabilities within the Assumption University community.

Disability Defined

The Americans with Disability Act (ADA) defines a person with a disability as a person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. This includes individuals who:

  • Have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity
  • Have a record of such an impairments
  • Are regarded as having such impairment

Students requesting accommodations must self-identify and provide relevant and comprehensive documentation of disability to the Office of Student Accessibility Services. This office evaluates the clinical documentation and engages in an interactive process with students to determine eligibility and reasonable accommodations. Reasonable accommodations are such that they provide equal access for students with disabilities but are not accommodations that are unduly burdensome financially or administratively or that fundamentally alter the nature of the university's programs.

Due to the length of the eligibility and accommodation process, it is recommended that students begin the request for accommodations and document submission early.

Students interested in self-identifying and requesting accommodations should begin the process by completing the Accessibility Consent Form
