The University of Arkansas System eVersity believes every qualified student should have access to the education we provide. The University does not discriminate against any student, employee or applicant because of a physical or mental impairment with regard to any position or program for which that person is qualified. It is the policy of the University, in compliance with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA), Titles I and II of the ADA of 1990, and Sections 503 & 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, to provide reasonable accommodations to meet the academic needs of students with disabilities and allow employees with disabilities to perform the essential functions of their jobs.
The University has an obligation to engage in the interactive process and provide “reasonable accommodations” to students, employees and applicants with qualifying disabilities unless doing so creates an "undue hardship" for the University or constitutes a fundamental alteration to eVersity’s academic program. Each student, employee and applicant, however, is responsible for making timely and appropriate requests for his or her own required accommodations. Each student, employee and applicant will also be responsible for actively participating in securing the needed accommodations and/or auxiliary aids. Requests for accommodations must be made every semester that you register for classes. Accommodations are not retroactive, so if you wait until the middle of the semester to request accommodations, any assignments or examinations completed before you are approved for accommodations are not covered. Finally, the University has no obligation to provide academic adjustments until it receives sufficient specific information to enable it to evaluate the needs of a student, employee or applicant and the school’s ability to provide a required academic adjustment or employment modification without undue hardship.
Disability services for eVersity students are provided by the University of Arkansas at Monticello. To request an accommodation for a disability please contact Mary Whiting at firstname.lastname@example.org or (870) 260-1026. You will be required to complete and submit the Request for Disability Accommodation form and provide recent (no older than three years) medical or other appropriate diagnostic evaluation of the disability. Documentation must include, as appropriate, physical description, medical or clinical explanation from a qualified physician, psychologist, psychiatrist or other appropriate health care provider of any limitations imposed by such disability on your learning/job duties/major life activities, as well as, any medically necessary recommendations for reasonable academic or employment accommodations. Final decisions on reasonable accommodations are made by the University. It is the responsibility of the student to inform the instructor of any approved accommodations at the beginning of the course.
