Support Services for Students with Disabilities

Welcome to Academic Support Services for
Students with Disabilities

Lehigh University is committed to ensuring nondiscrimination and equal access to all programs, services, and activities for qualified students with disabilities. Lehigh students with physical and/or learning disabilities have met the same competitive requirements for admission as all other Lehigh students. Once admitted, students may request support services in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Amendment Act of 1990, as amended. The ultimate goal is to ensure that students with disabilities have equal access and are given an opportunity to grow independently to their fullest potential at a competitive university.

It is the responsibility of students with disabilities to identify themselves to the appropriate university contact person to provide the required documentation in order to receive support services. Given the specific nature of each person’s disability, “reasonable accommodations” will be determined on an individual basis by the Documentation Review Committee..
