Carnegie Mellon takes great efforts to provide physical and programmatic campus access to everyone. Qualified individuals are entitled to reasonable accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA regulations). Accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis, based on documentation of disability.
