NOTE: Gannon University students enrolled in PSLD may select any academic major offered by the University as long as they meet the requirements of the major.
"No otherwise qualified person with a disability in the United States…shall, solely by reason of…disability, be denied the benefits of, be excluded from participation in, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance."
Colleges and universities receiving federal financial assistance must not discriminate in recruitment, admission, or treatment of students. Students with documented disabilities may request modifications, accommodations, or auxiliary aids, which will enable them to participate in and benefit from all postsecondary educational programs and activities. Postsecondary institutions must make such changes to ensure that the academic program is accessible to the greatest extent possible by all students with disabilities.
Under the provisions of Section 504, universities and colleges can make modifications for students with disabilities such as:
Permit exams to be proctored, read orally, dictated or scribed.
Please note: reasonable accommodations do not negate requirements for successful completion of a course or program.
