LDS Business College (LDSBC) provides reasonable academic modifications for students with disabilities according to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. It is the responsibility of the student to self-identify and provide proper documentation in order for LDSBC to provide adequate academic modifications. The type of documentation required, as well as what is considered current documentation, depends on the individual and the nature of the disability.
Services are individualized based on what reasonable modifications the student needs to ensure that the student has equal access to the educational and administrative services and programs offered at LDSBC. There is no predetermined list of modifications for any particular disability. Modifications are determined through an interactive process that begins during a student’s intake interview with the disability services representative. Modification decisions are based on the impact of a student’s disability, any relevant academic policies, and an assessment of the essential outcomes of a course or program of study.
Temporary medical conditions such as broken limbs, surgery, flu, and pregnancy are not usually considered disabilities. However, these students may visit with a disability services representative to brainstorm options for handling their situation. Services provided by disability services (e.g., note taker, exam reader/scribe) may be considered; however, documentation from the treating physician will be required to continue the intake process.
