Student Support Services

No otherwise qualified person with a disability in the United States…shall, solely on the basis of disability, be denied access to, or the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity provided by any institution receiving federal financial assistance.

Thus states Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The American with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), the landmark civil rights legislation, further reinforces the mandate of non-discrimination towards people with disabilities.

These two legislative acts encompass a broad range of mandated equalizing opportunities. Universities and colleges must ensure accessibility to students with disabilities (SWDs) of any/all/full educational academic services and programs.
