 Prairie State College shall recognize and comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), PL-10136, and with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, which apply to post-secondary education programs and activities.

With regard to recruitment, admission, academic programs, occupational training, counseling, placement, financial aid, physical education, athletics, intercollegiate activities and clubs, Prairie State College shall provide reasonable accommodation and/or program modification to all qualified disabled students to afford them an equal opportunity to participate in those programs or activities for which they demonstrate an ability to benefit. A qualified disabled student is an individual with a disability who meets the academic and technical standards requisite to admission or participation in the College educational programs or activities.

It is generally the responsibility of the student who requires accommodations to request such accommodation through the College’s Director of Disability Services & Testing or designee.
