At UMA, Learning Success is the department within Student Support and Development which is responsible for providing necessary accommodations to students with disabilities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

UMA complies with all laws which define the rights of individuals with disabilities, and makes reasonable efforts to accommodate specific academic needs. Students with disabilities who apply to the University are admitted through the same admissions process, and must meet the same admission standards, as other students. It is the student’s responsibility to request support through contact with the Department of Learning Success, or their local Student Services Coordinator.

北京快3代理It is important to note that the laws and procedures which govern support for students with disabilities are different in college than in high school. Colleges do not offer special education, rather they provide accommodations. An accommodation is any change in the learning environment or in the way things are customarily done that enables a person with a disability to have equitable access to the University experience.

北京快3代理Accommodations may vary according to the specific requirements of a course or activity; therefore, an accommodation request must be made by the student prior to each new semester, or desired participation in University sponsored events. Students are encouraged to request course accommodations as soon as they know their class schedule for the upcoming term. Accommodations may take several weeks to implement.
