Disability services

Creighton University is committed to providing services and resources to meet the needs of qualified students with disabilities, ensuring equal access to academic programs and University facilities. Guided by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the American with Disabilities Act of 1990, and the ADA Amendment Act of 2008, Disability Services coordinates the process through which all students request and receive reasonable accommodations, working closely with faculty and staff to meet individual needs. Services for students with disabilities are provided to qualified students to ensure equal access to educational opportunities, programs, and activities in the most integrated setting possible. Accommodations are provided on a case-by-case basis due to student’s particular documented need. Students are encouraged to request and/or disclose need of accommodations as soon as possible after acceptance. Once disclosure to the office occurs, Disability Services will start the interactive process to see what accommodations or auxiliary aides are reasonable and do not fundamentally alter educational opportunities. Each student may be required to submit medical or other diagnostic documentation of disability and functional limitations, such as psychological assessments and evaluations, which Creighton University’s Student Counseling Services may be able to assist with.  The University reserves the right to provide services only to students who complete and provide written results of evaluations and recommendations for accommodations to appropriate University personnel.
