Disabilities Accommodations

The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 Policy.

Louisiana Christian University does not discriminate on the basis of disabilities in the operation of its programs. Classrooms, residence halls, auditoriums, and other public facilities provide accessibility or alternate locations and services for persons with physical disabilities.

Following acceptance for admission, a student who has a physical and/or learning disability that qualifies under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and who desires modifications or accommodations should contact the Director of the Student Success Center for information and guidance. This voluntary notification will be helpful in planning suitable accommodations and assuring satisfactory adjustments to the campus environment.

Students with disabilities have the right to:

  • An equal opportunity to learn.
