Students with Disabilities

Saint Xavier University's policies comply with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which states that "no otherwise qualified individual with a disability in the United States ... shall, solely by reason of disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance." Saint Xavier University also complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, which guarantees that "all persons, able and disabled, have the right to ... full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages and accommodations of any place of public accommodation."

Saint Xavier University is committed to providing equal access to programs for our diverse student body. For students with documented disabilities, the University assures that reasonable accommodations, modifications and auxiliary aids are provided. Students with disabilities who wish to request accommodations should contact Learning Center and Disability Services in L-108 or at 773-298-3308.

A grievance procedure has been established for members of the University community who believe an individual has been subjected to discrimination solely because of disability. Information about those procedures is available from the Learning Center and Disability Services in L-108 or the 504 Compliance Office (Vice President for Student Affairs) in L-208.
