Niagara University has a responsibility to provide program access (including physical access, access to programs, services, activities, and instruction) to qualified students with disabilities. This means that the University provides reasonable and appropriate accommodations, academic adjustments, and/or auxiliary aids for individuals with disabilities upon request. Reasonable accommodations may include providing printed materials in an alternative format, an interpreter, access to assistive technology, relocating services to accessible locations, and providing extended time on tests.
Students with disabilities must register with Niagara University's Disability Services Office, provide documentation of disability, and request needed accommodations. Disability Services has the responsibility of determining what reasonable accommodation is and providing the accommodation in a timely manner. Ultimately, a student with a disability requires alternative arrangements only when faced with a task that requires skill that his/her disability precludes.
