Accommodations for Students with Disabilities
The University and its programs and activities are accessible to academically qualified students who have physical, learning, or psychiatric disabilities as required under the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA). Although some architectural barriers still remain, physically disabled persons can traverse the campus with a minimum of difficulty. University libraries, the student unions, several residence halls, and more recently constructed classroom buildings are accessible to students who use wheelchairs or have other mobility impairments. Early registration, preferential scheduling, housing assistance, readers, note-takers, interpreters, alternative testing procedures, reduced course load, and special parking arrangements are some of the accommodations available to students with disabilities. Documentation from an appropriate professional is required for all accommodations. For further information contact the Office of Disability Services (http://www.uml.edu/student-services/disability/default.aspx) or by calling 978-934-4574..
Since admission to the University is based entirely on the academic qualifications of the applicant, admission procedures remain the same for all applicants, regardless of disability.
