Students with disabilities are provided certain protections under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.  If a student believes that he/she has been discriminated against on the basis of a disability, he/she may file a grievance.  Prior to filing a formal grievance, students are encouraged to attempt to resolve the issue directly with the individual in question.  Procedures for filing disability-related grievances are outlined in the Academic Policy Statement 811006-Disabled Student Policy.  Students wishing to file a grievance should notify the SSD Director.
