Gratz College 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 state and federal regulations, reasonable accommodations are provided to qualified students with documented disabilities.
A request for accommodations is deemed reasonable if it meets all the following criteria:
The essential requirements of an academic course or program need not be modified to accommodate an individual with a disability. Students whose accommodation requests are denied will not be discriminated against if they appeal the decision, and an appeal will in no way impact their overall experience at Gratz College.
It is the student’s responsibility to inform the College of the disability and submit any required documentation in order to receive accommodations, and therefore, the student should submit the request upon admission to Gratz College. This information will be kept in a locked file and kept strictly confidential pursuant to the Confidentiality of Information statement below.
No accommodations may be made prior to the notification of the disability and submission of documentation.
Students must identify themselves to the dean and provide the required documentation specified below at least 30 days in advance of the start of the requested accommodations.
Steps to Requesting Disability Accommodations
Students whose disability accommodation requests are denied or adjusted may submit an appeal in writing to the Office of Academic Affairs. This appeal must be made within 15 days of the decision.
The student must provide all necessary documentation to request disability accommodations and will be made at the student’s expense. Documentation must follow the guidelines as follows:
Gratz College will not release any information regarding a student’s individual diagnosis or documentation without his or her informed written consent or as required by law. A student is under no obligation to disclose the nature of his or her disability to a professor.
