|UMGC Policy V-1.30 Student Reasonable Accommodation||November 10, 2023||Accessibility Services|
In order for UMGC to arrange for the accommodations that will best meet students’ needs, students will submit a detailed request for accommodations along with clear documentation of the disability or chronic medical condition.
Documentation should show that the student has a disability which currently or permanently causes an impairment.
*This includes Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Eastern time, excluding weekends, University holidays, or University planned and unplanned closures.
Students who believe that, in violation of this Policy, they have been subjected to discrimination, harassment, or retaliation due to their disability or who believe their reasonable Accommodation Plan is not being implemented, may file a complaint with Fair Practices, a unit within the Office of Diversity and Equity. These complaints can also be directed to the U.S. Department of Education. Contact information for these offices is below:
