In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1972, Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) of 2008, Southern New Hampshire University does not discriminate on the basis of disability, including intellectual disability, in admission, treatment, or access to its programs or activities, nor does it discriminate in employment in its programs or activities.
It is the responsibility of all SNHU staff, faculty, and students to adhere to the practice of equal access to opportunities affiliated with the institution.
The University prohibits unlawful discrimination on the basis of disability and takes action to prevent such discrimination by providing reasonable accommodations to eligible individuals with disabilities.
The guidelines SNHU uses for documenting a disability and determining necessary and appropriate accommodations may vary among the different platforms (University College, College for America and College for Online and Continuing Education). Accommodations may differ depending on the type of coursework and the platform upon which it is offered.
SNHU has adopted an internal grievance procedure providing for prompt and equitable resolution of complaints regarding any action prohibited by Section 504, the ADA, or the ADAAA.
The following person has been designated to coordinate compliance with the disability regulations:
ADA/504 Compliance Coordinator
Students, staff, faculty, or members of the public who believe they have been denied appropriate disability related accommodations, including appropriate auxiliary aids and services may field a grievance with Southern New Hampshire University.
