ADA Requirements

Complying with Section 504, the Theatre Arts Department allows reasonable accommodations to provide equal program access to all students with handicaps. Academic requirements, such as classroom location, will be modified on a case by case basis, to afford qualified handicapped students and applicants an equal educational opportunity. In the event that a second floor classroom prevents a student with disabilities from participating in academic study, then an alternative facility will be designated for that particular class. However, the Department is not required to provide accommodations if the accommodations would fundamentally alter the nature of the program or the academic requirements that are essential to a program of study or to meet licensing prerequisites.
It is the student's responsibility to disclose disabilities. If a student fails to do so, the Department is not obligated to accommodate disabilities. Documentation and disclosure are handled through the Office of Disability Academic Support.
