Compliance with the Rehabilitation Act and Americans with Disabilities Act
No qualified individual with a documented disability shall be excluded from participation in, denied benefits of, or otherwise subjected to discrimination in any of Campbellsville University’s programs, courses, services and/or activities in compliance with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Requests for reasonable accommodations in programs, courses, services and/or activities requires current (i.e. within three years) documentation of the disability after acceptance to the University and before registration. Campbellsville University is committed to reasonable accommodations for students who have documented physical and learning disabilities, as well as medical and emotional conditions. If a student has a documented disability or condition of this nature, he or she may be eligible for disability services. Documentation must be from a licensed professional and current in terms of assessment. Please contact the Coordinator of Disability Services at (270) 789-5450 to inquire about services or to schedule an appointment.
According to the Americans with Disabilities Act, a person with a disability is one who:
- has a physical or mental impairment, which substantially limits a major life activity
- has a record of history of such impairment, or
- is regarded as having such an impairment.
Verification of Disability
The Coordinator of Disability Services will ask for documentation to verify the disability, and if appropriate, will determine allowable accommodations on college level and will work with instructors and Academic Support services to facilitate and track accommodations and services.
No accommodation will be provided without documentation. In addition, Campbellsville University will be unable to provide accommodations in the classroom if the student does not give permission to notify faculty that accommodations are needed. Information regarding a student’s disability is confidential. Information will not be released to anyone without the express written permission of the student.
