Disability Accommodations

CHP Disability Accommodation Policy

The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) and the College of Health Professions, in accordance with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Americans with Disabilities Act as Amended (ADAAA) of 2008, provides appropriate accommodations for students with disabilities in order to facilitate equitable access to education.

When a qualified student with a disability requests accommodation, every reasonable effort will be made to provide the accommodation, adjustment, and/or auxiliary service, as long as the accommodation(s) do not alter the fundamental objective of a course or violate the program’s technical standards.

Students with a disability that need accommodations should contact the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at (501) 686-5730 to schedule an appointment to discuss your needs. Please make arrangements as soon as possible so accommodations can be made in a timely manner.
