Antioch University ensures, in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and all amendments, and other disability non-discrimination laws, that no student shall, on the basis of his or her disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subject to discrimination under any university program or activity.
Antioch University is committed to providing qualified students with a disability an equal opportunity to access the benefits, rights, and privileges of university services, programs, and activities, in the most integrated setting appropriate to the students’ needs. We are also committed to providing reasonable accommodation to qualified students with disabilities in order to ensure that all students have an equal opportunity to benefit from and have access to programs and services.
Antioch University maintains a Disability Support Services (DSS) Office on each campus and for university-wide programs to coordinate services for students with disabilities. All students requesting reasonable accommodations must register with the DSS Office and may be required to submit documentation of disability from a health care professional. All accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis since functional limitations can vary uniquely.
If you are a student with disabilities and you believe that you may require any reasonable accommodation(s), please contact the DSS Office listed below at the earliest opportunity. Those with documented disabilities, diagnosed by a qualified professional, and disclosed to the coordinator for student disability services, may request and be accorded reasonable accommodations that will allow them to participate in the institution’s programs and services.
Students should understand that the university can provide reasonable accommodation for students with disabilities only upon arrangement through the DSS Office. Faculty and staff members should not attempt to arrange reasonable accommodation of disability independent of the DSS Office.
