Rehabilitation Act and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008, West Coast University abides by the policy that no student with a disability shall be excluded from participation in programs and services offered by the University when reasonable accommodations may be provided. A student is eligible for reasonable accommodations and/or auxiliary aids and services if the student has a disability and the Disability Services Coordinator has met with the student, consulted with the University Director of Student and Alumni Affairs, and determined that the functional limitations of the disability can be reasonably accommodated.

West Coast University is committed to providing reasonable accommodations including auxiliary aids and or services to qualified individuals with a disability, unless providing such accommodations would result in undue burden or fundamentally alter the nature of the relevant program, benefit or service provided by the University. To request auxiliary aids or service, students should contact the Student Services Office at the campus. Students should attempt to submit requests with supporting documentation at least six weeks prior to the beginning of the first day of classes.
