Students with Special Needs

The university, through the Office for Students with Disabilities (OSD), coordinates the efforts to integrate students with disabilities into all areas of campus life. All accommodations are coordinated through the OSD office. Services from the OSD are provided based on receipt and acceptance of specific documentation requirements.

Misericordia University does not discriminate on the basis of disability in admission to its programs, services, in access to them, in treatment of individuals with disabilities or in any aspect of their operations. The university also does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its hiring or employment practices. Should a student with a disability feel that he/she is a victim of discrimination based on ability, he/she can file a grievance through the OSD office.

This notice is provided as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Questions, complaints or requests for additional information regarding the ADA and Section 504 may be forwarded to the Office for Students with Disabilities.

This notice is available from the OSD in large print, on audio tape, and in Braille.
