Disability ResourcesFoley Library, 2nd floor, East Wing
Disability Access provides access services to Gonzaga University’s programs, services, activities, and facilities for qualified students with disabilities in compliance with the American with Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Washington State laws. They recommend appropriate academic adjustments, reasonable accommodations, auxiliary aids, assistive technology, advocacy, and other types of assistance for students with disabilities.
In order to receive reasonable accommodations, students are responsible for requesting accommodations and for providing the appropriate documentation to the Disability Access office. Any information about a disability shared in an application is treated as confidential by the law school’s admissions office and is not shared with Disability Access. If you are requesting accommodations, you still need to contact Disability Access, and provide documentation. Students MUST contact Disability Access at least four weeks prior to each semester for which they are requesting services. Lack of advance notice may delay the availability of accommodations. However, Disability Access continuously evaluates student documentation and requests for accommodation throughout the school year.
To learn about Disability Access' specific guidelines or to review its documentation policies, you may contact them directly or visit their website.
