If you have been accepted for the 2014-2015 academic year, please attend Accepted Students' Day on April 5th or 12th. CASA will host an open house from 11am-1pm, where staff members will be available to answer questions related to accommodating incoming students with disabilities.
We are not able to meet with prospective or incoming students during the academic year. CASA staff will schedule individual meetings with incoming students with disabilities during July and August.
Framingham State University offers equal opportunities to all qualified students, including those with disabilities and impairments. The University is committed to making reasonable accommodations as are necessary to ensure that its programs and activities do not discriminate, or have the effect of discriminating, on the basis of disability. Academic Support serves students with learning and psychiatric disabilities as well as students with visual, mobility and hearing impairments.
Academic Support works to provide reasonable accommodations to qualified students. The purpose of accommodations, modification and/or auxiliary aids is to reduce or eliminate any disadvantages that may exist because of a disability. Framingham State University is not mandated by law to waive specific courses or academic requirements considered essential to a particular program or degree. Rather, the University is mandated to modify existing requirements on a case-by-case basis in order to ensure that individuals are not discriminated against on the basis of their disability.
