Students seeking disability services at Doane University
The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (section 504) and the Americans with Disability Act (ADA), 1990, state that “no otherwise qualified disabled individual in the United States...shall, solely on the basis of disability, be denied access to, or the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity provided by any institution receiving federal financial assistance.”
All Doane programs are accessible to students with disabilities. For buildings or portions of buildings that are not easily accessible, Doane will help reschedule classes to accessible sites or take other steps to open programs to any student with mobility impairments.
Students interested in services related to a disability should notify the college of any special circumstances that would affect their ability to compete equally in the college environment. To assist the college in providing services, documentation of such disabilities must be provided by qualified professionals upon request.
- Documentation is provided by the student. Doane University will not request documentation on behalf of the student.
- The following are acceptable forms of official documentation
- Statement of specific disability from a qualified professional (i.e. physician, therapist, counselor, certified educational psychologist, etc).
- Copies of secondary school records establishing the existence of a disability and accommodations provided at the secondary level.
- ***Please note that IEPs and 504 plans may provide helpful insight into what accommodations will benefit the student, but they do not obligate Doane University to provide the same accommodations.***
