Students with Disabilities

The Board of Regents of the University of Minnesota is committed to providing for the needs of enrolled or admitted students who have disabilities under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA).

It is the policy of the Board of Regents that each campus shall make services available for any student who, through a recent assessment, can document a disability. The administration is directed to provide appropriate services, and included among them shall be 1) support, counseling, and information, 2) academic assistance services, and 3) advocacy services.

In general, University policy calls for reasonable accommodations to be made for students with disabilities on an individualized and flexible basis. It is the responsibility of students with disabilities, however, to seek available assistance at the University and to make their needs known. The University offices and committees that help to ensure equitable access for students with disabilities are Academic Affairs, the Committee on Access for Persons with Disabilities, and the Office for Students with Disabilities.
