Framingham State University, in compliance with the mandates of Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, offers opportunities to all students without regard to disabilities.
No qualified person shall, on the basis of his or her disability, be denied the benefit of, or otherwise be subject, to discrimination under any of the University's educational programs, activities, and employment opportunities. The University is committed to making reasonable modifications and accommodations to ensure that its programs and activities do not discriminate, or have the effect of discriminating, on the basis of disability. Prior to matriculation, students with disabilities are encouraged to contact the Office of Academic Support to discuss specific accommodations.
Students who have documentation that support their request for academic support services, such as extended time for tests, note takers, sign language interpreters, computer transcribers, and textbooks in an alternative format, are required to submit their documentation to the Office of Academic Support, located in the Center for Academic Support and Advising (CASA). The Director of Academic Support (508-626-4906) schedules individual conferences with each student to arrange for the appropriate support services. The Office of Academic Support works closely with Disability Services to provide reasonable accommodations to qualified students.
