Responsible Office – Department:
Effective Date of Policy:
Daemen University is committed to ensuring equal access and full participation in programs and activities for students with disabilities in compliance with section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act and applicable state and local laws. Accessibility Services is the department designated by the University to determine reasonable and appropriate accommodations and services for students with disabilities.
All students must meet the academic standards of their curriculum and abide by the Student Code of Conduct articulated in the Student Handbook. Certain programs have additional technical standards relative to performance in clinical and similar experiential learning environments. Reasonable accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis. Accommodations that would fundamentally alter the nature of a course, program, or activity cannot be authorized. If you are a qualified applicant who may need an accommodation within the academic setting or the campus environment (student housing, dining, etc.) please contact the Director of Accessibility Services at 716-839-8228 to discuss your needs.
Students or applicants who have any questions concerning the university’s non-discrimination policy or policy on accommodation of students with disabilities should consult the institutional policy portal found at policies.daemen.edu.
