Student Policy Applying to Non-Discrimination on the Basis of Disability

It shall be the policy of the Creighton University School of Pharmacy and Health Professions to ensure that no qualified person shall, solely by reason of disability, be denied access to, participation in, or benefits of, any program or activity operated by Creighton University. Given appropriate notice, each qualified person shall receive reasonable accommodations to ensure equal access to educational opportunities, programs, and activities in the most integrated setting possible. All applications to the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions will be managed so as to comply with the Federal standards set forth in the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

Federal law prohibits Creighton University from making inquiries regarding disability or handicap prior to admission. Information regarding disability, voluntarily given or inadvertently received, will not affect any admission decision. However, if a student requires special services because of a disability, upon acceptance he or she is given the opportunity to declare the disability and request accommodations. The accepted student may also directly contact the Assistant/Associate Dean in the Office of Academic and Student Affairs or the Creighton University Office of Disability Accommodations (ODA). This voluntary self-identification allows Creighton University to prepare for the effective delivery of all programs, activities, and services to students with disabilities. If provided, this information will be kept in strict confidence. Creighton University will not provide accommodations without verification of disability by the Office of Disability Accommodations.
