Wilmington University is committed to making all of its educational opportunities accessible to students with disabilities in compliance with federal, state, and local laws, including the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. Reasonable accommodations are provided on an individual, case-by-case basis. Six criteria are used to determine whether a requested accommodation is reasonable. The accommodation requested:
In most instances, the reasonable accommodation provided is acceptable to both the student and faculty member. However, if that is not the case, a grievance procedure will be followed:
If a faculty member initiates this process, the Office of the Vice President of Academic Affairs is also consulted. Usually a resolution can be found through this informal review of the reasonable accommodation. If acceptable, the reasonable accommodation is provided. If not, the student or faculty member may request (and consent to as appropriate) the next recourse.
