Qualified individuals are entitled to reasonable accommodations under the guidelines of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Equal Opportunity Services serve as links between individuals with disabilities and the campus community.
Accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis. In order to receive services/accommodations verification of a disability is required as recommended in writing by a doctor, licensed psychologist or psycho-educational specialist. All information will be considered confidential and only released to appropriate personnel on a need to know basis.
To access services, individuals must initiate a request in writing for specific services/accommodations (books on tape, enlargements, interpreters, etc.). The university makes available memorandums of introduction for students to give to professors, which document disability and describe the accommodations. Accommodations prescribed only apply to Carnegie Mellon and may not be valid elsewhere. The individual takes full responsibility for ongoing assistance. For more information or to initiate a request for accommodations, please contact Larry Powell.
