ADA and Rehabilitation Act information related to Education

Introduction

Although the Job Accommodation Network specializes primarily in employment situations, we frequently get questions about students’ rights and accommodations in educational settings.

The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 both ensure that students with disabilities have equal access to educational opportunities in higher education. Both laws require colleges and universities to offer a wide range of services, accommodations, and auxiliary services for students with disabilities. These services are typically individually designed, and based on the specific needs of each student as identified by the school’s Disability Service Providers.
