Learning Center Experience
Kaplan University is committed to providing opportunities for higher education to students with disabilities and to making the online programs, activities, and facilities at the University accessible to students with disabilities. All accommodations for students with disabilities are handled via the Center for Disability Services (CDS), a division of the Academic Success Center (ASC).
Kaplan University makes every effort to provide reasonable accommodations to students presenting a documented disability. In compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the implementing regulations 34 CFR part 104 (barring discrimination on the basis of disability), and the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and the implementing regulations in 29 CFR part 1630 (1992), Kaplan University has established specific guidelines for students who are enrolled in our programs and are seeking accommodations.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal law, passed in 1990, designed to protect the rights of individuals with disabilities from discrimination based on their disability.
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act is a federal law, passed in 1973, designed to protect the rights of individuals with disabilities in programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance from the U.S. Department of Education.
The Center for Disability Services (CDS) at Kaplan University is the primary office responsible for the coordination of services for students with disabilities.
Students with disabilities are responsible for requesting an accommodation. Pursuant to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, Kaplan University will provide reasonable accommodations for students who have met the eligibility and verification requirements of the CDS.
