Clarkson University assures equal educational opportunities by providing accommodations and services for qualified students with documented disabilities in accordance with Federal Law, specifically the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
By federal law, a person with a disability is any person who:
- has a physical or mental impairment;
- has a record of such impairment; and
- is regarded as having such an impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities such as walking, standing, seeing, speaking, breathing, taking care of oneself, learning.
The Office of Accessibility Services at Clarkson University, located at 1003 Price Hall, is the designated office responsible for maintaining disability-related documentation, certifying eligibility for receipt of services, determining "reasonable" accommodations, and ensuring the provision of those services.
