What Rights Apply to Students with Disabilities

Your Rights

The rights of students with disabilities which pertain to post-secondary education are provided under Section 504 and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. These laws prohibit discrimination by institutions to "otherwise qualified" students with disabilities. This enables such students to have an equal opportunity to benefit from the education offered by those institutions.

Reasonable substitutions of requirements for admission to the College, admission into a program of study, upper division entry, or for graduation, in addition to exemption of college preparatory and basic skills exit requirements (TABE), shall be provided to eligible students with documented disabilities in accordance with Sections 1007.264 and 1007.265 Florida Statutes and Florida State Board Rules 6A-10.040 and 6A-10.041. Each request will be considered on an individual basis.
