|Policy Statement |
The Christ College of Nursing and Health Sciences (the “College”) is committed to students’ equal access to programs, services and activities in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) of 2008. It is the College’s policy to provide individuals with disabilities full and equal enjoyment of the services, facilities, and privileges of the College. The College does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its admission, recruitment, academics, housing, research, financial aid, counseling, employment assistance, and/or any other service, facility, or privilege available to students or potential students. Further, the College does not screen out, exclude, expel, limit, or otherwise discriminate against an individual seeking admission as a student, or an individual enrolled as a student, based on disability. The College promotes an environment of respect and support for individuals with disabilities.
Students or potential students with disabilities as defined by applicable law have the right to request reasonable accommodations from the College. Where applicable, the College will make reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities. Students bear the responsibility for disclosure of a disability and the request for reasonable accommodations.
Documentation of a specific disability does not translate directly into specific accommodations. Reasonable accommodations are individually determined and based on the functional impact of the condition and its likely interaction with the environment. As such, accommodations may vary from individual to individual with the “same” disability diagnosis and from environment to environment for the same individual.
The granting of an accommodation does not mean the applicant is regarded as disabled. Use of the term “disability” in or the granting of an accommodation under this policy does not mean that The Christ College of Nursing and Health Sciences has concluded that any student or applicant is disabled within the meaning of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or any other statute.
