Academic Services

Centenary University is committed to full academic participation for persons with disabilities. It is the policy that no qualified person will be excluded from participating in any University program or activity, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination with regard to any University program or activity. This policy derives from the commitment to non‐discrimination for all persons in employment, access to facilities, student programs, activities, and services. Achieving full participation and integration of people with disabilities requires the cooperative efforts of all departments, offices and personnel. To this end, Centenary University continues to strive to achieve excellence in its services and to assure that its services are delivered equitably and efficiently to all members of its campus community. Assurance of equal academic participation rests upon legal foundations established by federal law, specifically the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 including Section 504, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008. By federal law, a person with a disability is any person who: 1. has a physical or mental impairment; 2. has a record of such impairment; 3. is regarded as having such an impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities such as self‐care, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, or learning. Any student who has a disability is encouraged to identify themself and seek assistance through the Disabilities Services Office.
