Academic Success recommends reasonable accommodations in accordance with Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504) and Stetson University's academic standards to ensure that there will be no discrimination on the basis of disability. These recommendations are developed through the review of disability documentation and with the consideration of each student's individual needs, strengths and academic program. An academic accommodation is any change in the policies or procedures of a course and/or academic program for the purpose of allowing a student with a disability equal access to learning and an equal opportunity to demonstrate knowledge.
Academic success provides opportunities for students to reach their individual goals in the higher education environment by ensuring equal access and skills-based coaching and tutoring.
