The Life Directions Center at Colorado Christian University is committed to providing reasonable accommodations for all of our students who have been diagnosed with a disability. Our advisors work closely with faculty to create an environment that is conducive to learning and that minimizes the impact of a disability on a student's academic performance.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (1990) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act (1973) mandate equal opportunities for students to participate in or benefit from the services offered by a place of public access. This mandate is inclusive of private universities as well. A qualified individual under the ADA must have a physical or mental impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities. Major life activities involve caring for oneself, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, and working. Moreover, a qualified disabled student must meet the academic and technical standards required for admission or participation in an education program or activity.
At CCU, we are committed to inclusion and providing equal access to individuals with disabilities. Individuals will not be discriminated against on the basis of disability or be denied equal access to or reasonable accommodations for the educational opportunities available at CCU.
