Disability Services

Marylhurst University is committed to ensuring that all students have equal access to its academic programs. Students with disabilities are entitled to reasonable accommodations according to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Students have the right not to be discriminated against or treated with disrespect based on an actual or perceived disability. They are entitled to access all university programs if "otherwise qualified" to participate. However, along with these rights come responsibilities.

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 stipulates that a student with a disability is obligated to provide documentation of their disabling condition to the university. These students must register with the services coordinator for students with disabilities.

To register:

  • Make an appointment for an intake/accommodation assessment
  • Provide appropriate evidence (documentation) of your disability from a qualified medical or psychological professional

Marylhurst University also has rights and responsibilities. These include ensuring access to all programs, evaluating applicants based on ability and reviewing documentation supporting requested accommodations. The institution has the right to refuse any accommodation that would fundamentally alter an academic program or would pose an undue burden on the university.

The Office of Accessibility & Disability Services is located
in Room 233, Marian Hall.
