Drew University, in accord with the policies underlying Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans Disability Act of 1990, and in compliance with the Association of Higher Education and Disability guidelines, works to ensure that reasonable accommodations are implemented for enrolled students with documented disability to function in the academic environment. All admitted students are judged by the appropriate admissions officer to have the ability to succeed academically, and all students are required to meet the same academic standards. At the same time, the University recognizes that documented disability and potential learning differences may require accommodations. We are committed to helping all students develop fully and complete successfully their degree requirements.

Self-Identification

Admitted students are encouraged to discuss the nature of their disability with and to submit documentation of their disability to the Office of Academic Services. Accommodations can then be determined, thereby allowing students the appropriate resources to assist them in achieving their academic potential at the start of their program of study. Admitted students requesting accommodations are required to complete and submit a Self-identification form (along with appropriate documentation) to the Office of Academic Services.

Please note: It is the student’s responsibility to initiate contact with the Office of Academic Services. Accommodations are not permitted on a retroactive basis.
