The mission of student accessibility is to assist in creating an inclusive and accessible university community where students with disabilities have an equal opportunity to fully participate in all aspects of the educational environment. We cooperate through partnerships with students, faculty, and staff to promote students' independence and to ensure recognition of their abilities.
Missouri University of Science and Technology (S&T) strives to assure that no qualified person with a disability shall, solely by reason of the disability, be denied access to, participation in, or the benefits of any program or activity operated by the university. Each such qualified person shall receive reasonable accommodations to provide equally effective access to educational opportunities, programs, and activities in the most integrated setting appropriate unless provision of such reasonable accommodation would constitute an undue hardship on the university or would substantially alter essential elements of the academic program or course of study or would otherwise compromise academic standards.
In compliance with federal and state laws, S&T is intentional in efforts to be consistent with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which states that no recipient of federal financial assistance may discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities solely by reasons of disability. This policy is also intended to be consistent with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the Missouri Human Rights Act.
If you are a student with a disability and would like more information regarding the provision of services through the office of student accessibility, please feel free to contact us to schedule a personal, confidential appointment.
