ADA Statement

The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) is committed to the principles of equal access and opportunity for students with disabilities in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, and the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) of 2008. UMB will not discriminate on the basis of disability against a student with a disability in regard to application, acceptance, grading, advancement, training, discipline, graduation, or other aspects related to a student’s participation in an academic program of UMB.  This applies to all university students, post-docs, and applicants for admission to the university.

The UMB Accommodation Process is an interactive process between the student, the Office of Educational Support and Disability Services, and the school.  UMB will make a reasonable accommodation for a student with a disability to allow the performance of the essential requirements of an academic program.  UMB will not make an accommodation if the accommodation alters the academic nature of the program or would result in undue hardship to the University or threaten the health and safety of the student with a disability or other persons.
