Student disability claims are increasing and the nature of these claims are dramatically changing. Therefore, it is expedient that college disability services offices are equipped with the necessary information to comply with current federal law. Managing Student Disability Compliance is a reference manual designed to educate and inform institutional administrators and faculty about the current state of the law as it relates to disabled students.

Managing Student Disability Compliance provides a detailed analysis of federal disability requirements for an institution under both the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 504 and subsequent obligations under the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990. Both of these statutes requires that institutions determine whether the student is disabled, whether the disability limits a major life activity, and what, if any, accommodation is reasonable. Determining the nature of the disability and the appropriateness of the accommodation can be challenging and frustrating. However, Managing Student Disability Compliance offers practical solutions, which benefit both the disabled students and the institution.

Managing Student Disability Compliance is a valuable reference tool to aid college decision makers in developing, implementing and managing disability services programs and interpreting disability policy and compliance obligations. This manual focuses on the following topics:

  • Identifying the Disabled

  • Assessment of Disability Claims

  • Admissions

  • Retention and Dismissal of Decisions

  • Academic Accommodations

  • Nonacademic Accommodations

  • College Athletics

  • Student Housing
