Support for Students with Disabilities: Morgan's Office of Disability Services
As a critical component of Morgan State University, Student Disability Support Services is dedicated to assisting students with disabilities accomplish their scholastic and career goals by supporting academic and advocacy skills and by helping to eliminate the physical, technical, and attitudinal barriers that limit opportunities. Student Disability Support Services is committed to providing all services and operating all programs in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA 1990).
The ADA is a federal law, and colleges and universities are required to make reasonable accommodations to ensure that students with documented disabilities are able to participate in higher education. That is, the ADA specifies that students with documented disabilities who apply for services must be granted accommodations which afford the same opportunities for academic success, unless to do so would cause unjustifiable hardship or adversely affect the other students.
