Services for Students with Disabilities

Marian University's Ancilla College is committed to ensuring equal educational access and opportunities to qualified students with documented disabilities who wish to receive accommodations. In compliance with the American with Disabilities Amendment Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Marian University's Ancilla College provides accommodations to those who qualify in order to ensure equal access to higher education.

Accommodations are awarded on a case-by-case basis depending on the documentation received. If you have a disability and are requesting accommodations, please visit the ADA Coordinator.

Accessing Academic Accommodations

Although documentation does not need to be submitted each semester, students are required to complete steps three and four for each semester in which accommodations will be requested.

1. In order to receive academic accommodations, a student must self-disclose a documented disability. Marian University's Ancilla College and its faculty and staff cannot, and will not ask if a student has a disability.

Guidelines for documentation

Documentation can be emailed, mailed, or faxed to the ADA Coordinator. See contact information below.

  • An IEP or 504 Plan (if recently graduated from high school), AND
  • Evaluation from a licensed professional, including:
    • Diagnostic statement identifying the disability
    • Date of current evaluation
    • Date of original diagnosis, and associated licensed professional
    • Description of diagnostic test(s) used and diagnostic criteria
    • Treatments, medications, assistive devises, and services currently prescribed or used
    • Information regarding limitations as it pertains to the academic environment

2. After submitting the appropriate documentation, students will be contacted by the ADA Coordinator to set up a time to meet and discuss accommodation needs and allowances.

3. At the meeting, students will complete related forms and paperwork regarding accommodations. This will include forms that students will present to faculty disclosing the need for accommodations.

4. Students will return forms signed by the faculty to the ADA Coordinator before accommodations can begin.
