There are specific University guidelines as well as federal laws, state legislation, and federal regulations that require equal treatment of applicants with disabilities. This means that the nature or severity of a disability may not be used as a basis for the consideration of admission at the undergraduate or graduate level. Additionally, universities must not limit the number of qualified disabled students. Overall, applicants with disabilities at the undergraduate or graduate level must be considered for admission in the same manner as other applicants.
Standardized or other admissions tests can be specially administered to disabled persons who may need additional time. Large print, braille, and recorded exams also can be provided in addition to readers and scribes. If a student needs to take any exam in a quiet, separate room, that accommodation must be made. However, it is the responsibility of the individual to request proper accommodation.
