Mount Aloysius College makes every reasonable effort to provide qualified services to students with disabilities in order to create equal access for academic success. The Accessibility Services Director works in collaboration with members of the campus community to ensure that the student is integrated into the academic setting that will best help them reach their academic goals. Reasonable accommodations can be provided to students with a documented disability.

Students seeking accommodations from Accessibility Services on the basis of a disability are required to submit documentation to verify eligibility for services under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Protection under these civil rights is based upon documentation of a current disability that substantially limits a major life function.
