At UMM, students with disabilities are an important part of our campus community. Nationwide, the number of college students with disabilities has steadily increased over the past thirty years. Today, one in nine college students discloses a disability.
Students who wish to request “reasonable accommodation” related to a disability based on the protections under Section 504 and the Americans with Disabilities Act, must meet with the Disability Services Coordinator and provide appropriate documentation of the disability. The student and the coordinator will review the disability documentation together and determine reasonable accommodations for each course.
Students eligible for accommodations will distribute their letter of accommodations to their instructors, including having a discussion on how the accommodations will assist in successfully completing the course.If you have any questions about the accommodations described therein, please contact the Office of Academic Success.
