Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973

In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 as amended and Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as amended, The University of North Carolina at Asheville provides equal opportunities in higher education to academically qualified students with visual, hearing, physical, medical, learning, mental health and other disabilities contained in these acts.  The University does not discriminate against prospective students or enrolled students on the basis of their disability.  All admissions decisions and programmatic decisions, both in and out of the classroom, are in accordance with Federal Legislation.  In each instance, UNCA faculty and staff adheres to Federal laws regarding the education of individuals with disabilities.

When necessary, the university makes reasonable accommodations to insure full participation and fair evaluation of all students.  The faculty should consult the Faculty Handbook for more guidelines for accommodating students with disabilities.  All questions regarding appropriate accommodations for students with disabilities should be brought to the attention of the Office of Accessibility. Complete copies of these acts may be found in Ramsey Library.
