Students with documented learning disabilities have the same legal entitlements as students with physical disabilities.
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 mandates that: "No qualified person with a disability shall, on the basis of disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity which receives or benefits from federal financial assistance." According to Section 504 and the Americans with Disabilities Act regulations, students with documented learning disabilities have the same legal entitlements as students with physical disabilities and therefore both groups are entitled to academic adjustments and/or auxiliary aids.
If you believe that you have been discriminated against on the basis of disability, you are urged to contact the Graduate School Registrar or the Director of Institutional Diversity and Equity.
