Ohio Christian University is committed to its entire student body, including those who need accommodation for disabilities.
In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disability Act (ADA), the University will provide reasonable and appropriate accommodations for individuals with disabilities on a case-by-case basis. Accommodations are made in relation to a documented disability. The University will collaborate through its 504 Compliance Officer with appropriate external agencies to provide some accommodations. The 504 Compliance Officer is responsible for coordinating OCU's efforts in complying with applicable Federal and State laws and regulations, including the University's duty to address any inquiries or complaints regarding discrimination or denial of equal access.
The student must complete a form provided by the 504 Compliance Officer with appropriate documentation of his/her disability. The documentation must be within three (3) years of first request to OCU, and must include information that diagnoses the disability, that indicates the severity and longevity of the condition, and that offers recommendations for necessary and appropriate auxiliary aids, or services, academic adjustments, or other accommodations. In addition to this form, a qualified professional must complete the Verification of Disability form provided at http://www.ohiochristian.edu/about/nondiscriminatory-policy.
