Disability Services

Friends University is committed to achieving equal education opportunity and full participation for persons with disabilities. In compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008, the University does not exclude otherwise qualified persons with disabilities solely by reason of the disability from participating in university programs and activities, nor are persons with disabilities denied the benefits of these programs or subjected to discrimination.

It is the responsibility of the student to bring to the University’s attention the need for accommodation due to a qualifying disability. Requests for accommodation should be made to the Student Retention Initiatives Office. The Student Retention Initiatives Office will assist students in their request for accommodations and help them obtain other necessary support services. Once proper information has been received, the Student Retention Initiatives Office will notify appropriate faculty and/or staff of the student's specific requests. The Student Retention Initiatives Office will also make arrangements with outside agencies for any services needed (i.e., interpreters, books on CD, etc.). An updated disclosure release form is required each academic term in order for new faculty and/or staff to be contacted regarding the student’s requested accommodations. In addition, an updated application is required in order to meet any accommodation changes.
