Students with Disabilities

The intention of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and University policy is to make it possible for students with disabilities to take advantage of the educational opportunities for which they are otherwise qualified. Therefore, students who have met the University’s requirements for documentation of a disability must be granted an accommodation that meets his or her need.

Per the Student Accessibility Services website:

Reasonable accommodations are afforded to any student who is registered with the Student Accessibility Services Office, who has been deemed eligible by the Director of the Student Accessibility Services in accordance with Tufts polices, and in accordance with State and Federal regulations. Accommodations must be requested by the student, and be pertinent to the student’s documented disability, and must not substantially alter the educational program, intent, process, nor be an administrative burden to execute for the parties involved.
