Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) Compliance Policy
In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and subsequent regulations, Northcentral University provides reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with an appropriately documented disability, provided that such accommodation does not create an undue hardship. Northcentral determines accommodations on a case-by-case basis for students who are unable to meet program requirements due to appropriately documented disabilities.
Reasonable Accommodation Policy
Northcentral University is not campus-based. Accommodations are individual in nature and are decided on a case-by-case basis. Requested accommodations initiated by the student must be reasonable, must not create undue burden, must be supported by adequate documentation, and must be requested within a reasonable time frame.
Determination of reasonable accommodations, and compliance with the ADA and the Rehabilitation Act for Students, is the responsibilty of Disability Services.
Students requesting accommodations under this policy must contact Disability Services. The student must disclose their disability and provide adequate documentation (medical records, psychological testing, etc.) from a qualified professional (physician, psychologist, psychiatrist, etc.). Students who wish to request accommodations must be accepted for admission to Northcentral University before registering with Disability Services. In accordance with data privacy laws, Northcentral University will confidentially handle all documentation on students with disabilities.
Northcentral University's Disability Services is located in the Ombuds Office. Call 1-888-327-2877 Ext. 8048, or email DisabilityServices@ncu.edu.
