Touro University Nevada is committed to providing reasonable accommodations to students with documented disabilities. An individual with a disability is a person who has a physical or mental impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities of the individual.
The rights of students with disabilities are protected under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and the American with Disabilities Amendments Act of 2008. It is the policy of TUN to insure that no qualified student with a disability is excluded from participation in or subjected to discrimination in, any University program, activity, or event.
How do I request an accommodation, and who do I contact?
A student requesting an accommodation under the ADA for a disability must meet with the Compliance Officer, the Director of the Office of Academic Services and Institutional Support (OASIS). An application for requesting accommodations for a disability can be obtained from the OASIS office. After review of the request and required documentation, the Compliance Officer will communicate with the student as to whether or not they may receive accommodations from Touro University Nevada and next steps in the process.
A student who disagrees with a decision made by the Compliance Officer may appeal through the process found on pages 220-221 in the TUN University Catalog.
If a student feels he or she has been discriminated against by another student or by university personnel because of a disability, he or she has the right to request an investigation into such matter through the TUN policy and procedures stated in Appendix B, of the University catalog.
