Office of Disability ServicesUniversity Commitment

The University of New Orleans (UNO) is committed to providing for the needs of enrolled or admitted students who have disabilities under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA).

In general, University policy calls for reasonable accommodations to be made for students with documented disabilities on an individualized and flexible basis. It is the responsibility of students, however, to seek available assistance at the University and to make their needs known.

The University of New Orleans Office of Disability Services (ODS) is recognized as the UNO authority on all aspects related to academic accommodations for students with disabilities. Even if someone chooses not to employ ODS's assistance in acquiring accommodations, the faculty can use ODS as a resource to verify the legitimacy of the request for accommodation, review and interpret documentation, and explain the student's legal rights to accommodation.
