It is the policy of The College of St. Scholastica that all otherwise qualified students with disabilities will be given equal educational opportunities in the classroom and other College-sponsored programs and activities, including study abroad programs. The College will ensure that no otherwise qualified students with disabilities will be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination in any College class, program, or activity.
Appeals of requests for academic accommodations based upon a disability, should use this procedure. Students desiring to appeal a denial of a request for auxiliary aids should use the appeals procedure for auxiliary aid request denials, which is available from the Coordinator of the Disability Resource Center.
The following procedure will be used to address situations which a student perceives to be discriminatory and/or in violation of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Minnesota Human Rights Act, or any other law enacted to insure equal opportunity for all members of The College of St. Scholastica community.
If the problem does not relate to a specific class or activity, the individual should try to resolve the problem by bringing it to the attention of or discussing it with, the instructor or staff member involved, or to the Disability Resource Center Coordinator. If a satisfactory result cannot be obtained informally, the student may initiate a formal grievance.
