Overview

Presidio Graduate School is committed to a diverse and inclusive student body. 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), Presidio Graduate School is committed to providing students with disabilities full access to its programs, events, and facilities. The Director of Student Experience oversees the coordination of services for students with disabilities. To benefit from the protection of ADA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, students must self-disclose a disability to the Director of Student Experience and request an accommodation. 

The School requires the student to provide the medical documentation that verifies the existence of the disability, the student’s current condition, and need for an accommodation. Documentation must be submitted from the student’s treating medical provider and must have been issued within 3-years of the student’s request. The Director of Student Experience  will confer directly with the student requesting accommodations. 

A student’s disability has no bearing whatsoever on a student’s acceptance or non-acceptance to any of Presidio Graduate School’s degree programs. Potential or current students with a disability seeking an accommodation are encouraged to contact the Director of Student Experience, who will provide answers to common questions about disability services or the accommodations process and is responsive to all situations.

Records and Privacy

Presidio Graduate School has an obligation to maintain confidentiality regarding a student’s disability. Any information collected is solely for the student’s benefit. It is maintained separately from the student’s university record and housed within secure files with access limited to staff with a legitimate academic interest. An accommodated student will be informed as to what information is being provided to the faculty or staff regarding the request. Except where permitted by applicable law, disability information will not be shared with non- Presidio Graduate School employees without the student’s express written permission.
