Disability Policies

The SIU School of Law follows all applicable laws and regulations relating to students with physical or learning disabilities including the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Applicants are not required to identify known disabilities in the application form.

Admitted students with a physical or learning disability who seek an accommodation from the School of Law should immediately contact the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.

Requests for accommodations must be accompanied by appropriate documentation obtained within the last two years preceding the beginning of law school classes. Such documentation should include assessments, diagnoses and specific recommendations for modifications. Requests for accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis.

Academic and programmatic support services are available for students with either permanent or temporary disabilities at SIU Disability Support Service

If you believe that you or another person has been discriminated against by an entity covered by the ADA, you may file a complaint with the Disability Rights Section (DRS) in the Department of Justice. Information about how to file a complaint is available here: http://www.ada.gov/fact_on_complaint.htm
