Welcome to the Office of Accommodation and Inclusion
The University of Findlay provides reasonable accommodations for students with permanent or temporary disabilities or impairments. A person with a disability is defined as a person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities or bodily functions. The purpose of accommodations is to provide equal access to all programs and activities, pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation act of 1973.
Documentation may be necessary in identifying reasonable accommodations. Documentation must be relevant and/or recent (within the past 3-5 years) and can come from a variety of sources. Common sources of documentation include, but are not limited to, high school Individualized Education Program (IEP), high school 504 plans, history of accommodation from a previous college or university, and letters of impact from a medical or mental health care provider.
Registering with the Office of Accommodation and Inclusion
The Office of Accommodation and Inclusion participates in the interactive process to determine reasonable accommodations. In your introductory meeting, you will discuss the impact of your disability in the classroom and beyond. It is helpful to send documentation prior to the meeting so it can be reviewed prior to the meeting.
It is important to arrange accommodations as soon as possible, as accommodations cannot be retroactively applied and some accommodations (electronic books, interpreters, etc.) take time to arrange.
