Reasonable Accommodations for Students with Disabilities

LSU Health Shreveport seeks to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 by providing reasonable accommodations to students with documented disabilities. A person with a disability is someone who has a physical or mental impairment that limits substantially one or more major life activities, such as caring for oneself, performing manual tasks, learning, walking, seeing, hearing, breathing, and working; has a record of such an impairment; or is regarded as having such an impairment. Although students with temporary illness or injury are not considered disabled by law, every reasonable effort to accommodate their needs will be exercised.

Identification as a student with a disability is always voluntary. However, only those students who identify themselves to the University and/or present appropriate documentation of a disability are eligible for accommodations. Students are responsible for providing documentation of a disability and must contact their school’s academic dean (or dean’s designee) to request disability-related accommodations. Costs associated with documentation of a disability are the responsibility of the student. Upon receipt of such information, the dean (or dean’s designee) will determine what reasonable accommodations, if any, are appropriate for the student.


Roles and Responsibilities

Requesting Accommodations

Upon the initial request for accommodations, the student must provide the following:
