CALIMT admission decisions are made using criteria independent of an applicant’s disability. Students with disabilities desiring to enroll in the program at CALIMT must be able to meet the admissions standards. CALIMT will make efforts to provide reasonable accommodations to qualified individuals with disabilities to the extent that such accommodations are readily achievable. Though CALIMT takes the needs of student with disabilities seriously, it is not able to guarantee that all services can or will be provided.
CALIMT uses the definition of disability set forth in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which states that a disabled person is anyone who:
- Has a physical or mental impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities.
- Has a record of such impairment.
- Is regarded as having such impairment.
Students are required to provide the Registrar with medical or psychological documentation in order to receive accommodations. All medical information remains confidential and is only released to other school personnel with the student’s written permission.
Specifically, accommodations that are unduly burdensome or fundamentally alter the nature of the service, program or activity may not be entertained. In order to receive accommodations, a student must meet the following criteria:
- Have a documented disability (documentation required) that presents a significant barrier to the educational process.
- Request services from Disability Services through the Registrar’s Office.
