Post University welcomes students with disabilities and provides reasonable access and accommodations, so as to maximize student potential for success.
Post University offers students with disabilities an interactive process within which to discuss their needs, and then assesses requests for disability accommodations on a case-by-case basis. Disability accommodations may include time extensions, testing outside the classroom, assistive technology and the like. The Title IX and Disability Coordinator works closely with students and their instructors to provide and implement reasonable accommodations. In order to evaluate reasonable accommodation requests, the Title IX and Disability Coordinator and the student MUST discuss three factors: the particular needs of the student, the particular requirements of the course or academic program, and the format in which the course is delivered.
Students with disabilities are not required to inform Post University or any of its offices of their disability. However, if students wish to receive accommodations, they must contact the Title IX and Disability Coordinator at their earliest convenience, as accommodations are not retroactive. Ideally, this should occur at the time the student enters the University. The Title IX and Disability Coordinator is the only University officer authorized to address these special needs, and accommodations can only be granted through the Title IX and Disability Coordinator. Students who request consideration for academic accommodations must present official documentation of their disability on letterhead from a licensed medical practitioner. The documentation must: identify the disability, list the limitations caused by the disability, and suggest appropriate learning accommodations based on modality of learning. In lieu of medical documentation, IEP or 504 plans can also be submitted.
This information is confidential. The Title IX and Disability Coordinator will only share the necessary accommodation information with the student’s instructors, unless more permission is given by the student or if disclosure is required by law. No other information will be revealed to any element of the University without the student’s consent, which may be necessary to implement the accommodation. Many students, however, choose to allow the Title IX and Disability Coordinator the opportunity to speak about the student’s disability with other University Support Services, so that the student is provided resources from other areas, including: Academic Affairs, Athletics, Counseling Center, The Center for Academic Success and Residence Life.
Students are responsible for notifying the Title IX and Disability Coordinator at the beginning of every term/semester regarding requests for accommodation renewals.
If a student has a question or complaint about a disability accommodation determination, the student should first try to work out the issue with the Disability Coordinator on an informal basis. If not satisfied, the student can appeal the determination in writing, via Post University email address, to the Chief Regulatory Officer. The student should forward all supporting documentation to the Chief Regulatory Officer for his/her review. The Chief Regulatory Officer should respond in writing to the student, via Post University e-mail address, with his/her final decision within fifteen (15) calendar days of the student’s appeal. The decision of the Chief Regulatory Officer is final
