Trinity College of Nursing & Health Sciences is committed to providing educational opportunities for qualified students with documented disabilities through the provision of reasonable accommodations, in compliance with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504). While the College strives to accommodate students as fully as possible, reasonable adjustments or accommodations do not include measures that fundamentally alter the academic programs of the College or that place an undue financial burden on the College.
Qualifying for Services
The student is responsible for self-identifying and initiating the process, completing an Accessibility Services Intake Form, and providing documentation to the Director of Student Services and External Relations.
Documentation from a licensed health care provider should meet the following criteria:
- Letter printed on letterhead that describes the diagnosis affecting major life activities, symptoms, limited functional abilities in an educational setting and recommendations regarding effective academic accommodations to equalize student's educational opportunities
- Credentials and contact information of the licensed professional
- Documentation forms to verify specific disabilities are available from the Director of Student Services and External Relations
Inquiries regarding federal laws and regulations concerning the College's compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 may be directed to the Office for Civil Rights.
