STUDENTS WITH DISABILITES
Advanced Barber College is committed to providing equal access to its academic and social activities to all qualified students. While upholding this commitment, ABC will also maintain the high standards of achievement which are essential to the integrity of the College’s programs and services. In advancing these aims, the College will ensure that its policies, practices and procedures conform to Federal and state statutes and regulations. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 established the rights of individuals with disabilities.
The Americans With Disabilities Act (“ADA”) defines a person with a disability as any individual who
(1) has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities; (2) has a record of such an impairment; and
(3) is perceived by others as having such an impairment. In the context of colleges and universities, the most common disabilities include specific learning disabilities, visual and hearing impairments, physical challenges, and medical or health conditions that interfere with learning.
The ADA applies to colleges and universities as places of public accommodation and/or as employers. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (“ß 504”) states that no “otherwise qualified person” with a disability can be excluded from, denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity within an institution that receives Federal financial aid.
