The University of the Incarnate Word is committed to providing a supportive, challenging, diverse, and integrated environment for all students.
In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Subpart E and Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the University ensures accessibility to its programs, services and activities for students with documented disabilities.
Accessibility is accomplished through the provision of a wide variety of services tailored to each student’s documented needs and strengths.
To qualify for services, the student must provide the Office of Student Disability Services with the appropriate documentation of his or her disability at the time services and/or accommodations are requested.
