University of Arkansas Grantham complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and state and local requirements regarding students with disabilities. In compliance with federal and state regulations, University of Arkansas Grantham will provide reasonable accommodations or services to qualified students with disabilities.
UA Grantham will deem a request for accommodation or services reasonable if the request:
UA Grantham defines a qualified student as one whom, with or without reasonable accommodations, is able to perform the essential functions of program or course requirements. The essential requirements of an academic course or program do not need modification to accommodate an individual with a disability.
Final responsibility for selection of the most appropriate accommodation rests with the ADA Coordinator of University of Arkansas Grantham and is determined on a case-by-case basis, dependent upon the nature of the disability of a student. A student seeking accommodations or services is encouraged to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss potential academic accommodations or services and begin the review process. The ADA Coordinator, in consultation with the student, will determine the accommodation.
Student responsibility includes:
If a student identifies a disability that may prevent him/her from completing a degree program or seeking employment in a field for which the degree program is designed to prepare him/her, the University will take all information into consideration, including medical or professional documentation, when determining whether and what type of an accommodation will be made.
