Interim Student Academic Adjustments/Auxiliary AIDS Policy

The University of Houston adheres to the mandates of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008, as applicable. As such, the University has developed the Interim Student Academic Adjustments/Auxiliary Aids Policy to assist with the submission and processing of student academic adjustments/auxiliary aids requests. The Policy applies to University students who have a disability as defined by the Policy as well as federal and state law.

The University does not discriminate on the basis of disability against students in any program, service or activity offered by the University. The University is committed to ensuring that no student with a disability is excluded, denied services, segregated or otherwise treated differently than other students because of the absence of a reasonable academic adjustment/auxiliary aid. Therefore, it is the policy of the University that all students who have a disability are afforded equal academic opportunities in compliance with federal and state laws. The University in keeping with its values and goals, provides reasonable academic adjustments/auxiliary aids to students with disabilities.
