The University of Maryland (UM) is committed to the principles of equal access and opportunity for persons with disabilities in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. UM will not discriminate on the basis of disability against a qualified person 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 UM. This applies to all university students, post-docs, and applicants for admission to the university.
The UM Accommodation Process is an interactive process between the student, the Office of Educational Support and Disability Services, and the School. UM will make a reasonable accommodation for a qualified person with a disability to allow the performance of the essential requirements of an academic program. UM 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.
