Nova Southeastern University complies with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 by providing reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals with a documented disability. At the postsecondary level, it is the student’s responsibility to initiate the process for disability services and to provide the University with proper documentation of a disability from a qualified physician or clinician who diagnoses disabilities and sets forth-recommended accommodations.
The University’s ADA Policies and Procedures, and the necessary forms for requesting disability-related accommodations, can be obtained by contacting the NSU Office of Student Disability Services at 954-262-7185 (toll free at 1-800-986-3223, ext. 27185), or through its website at http://www.nova.edu/disabilityservices.
To ensure that reasonable accommodations can be provided in a timely manner, all forms and documentation should be completed and on file in the NSU Office of Student Disability Services a minimum of four (4) weeks prior to the commencement of classes for any given semester.
