ADA/504 Compliance

The university complies with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans
with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), as amended by the ADA Amendments Act of 2008,
and other applicable federal and state regulations that prohibit discrimination on
the basis of disability. The Rehabilitation Act and the ADA require that no qualified
person shall, solely by reason of disability, be denied access to, participation in,
or the benefits of, any program or activity operated by the university.

Under Section 504 and the ADA, the term “disability” means, with respect to an individual,
(A) a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life
activities of such individual; (B) a record of such an impairment; or (C) being regarded
as having such an impairment. Major life activities include, but are not limited to,
caring for oneself, performing manual tasks, seeing, hearing, eating, sleeping, walking,
standing, lifting, bending, speaking, breathing, learning, reading, concentrating,
thinking, communicating, and working. A major life activity also includes the operation
of a major bodily function.
