Disability Services at the University of South Carolina Upstate works to ensure that educational programming and services are accessible to students with disabilities.
Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 state that no “otherwise qualified” individuals, solely by reason of their disability, can “be denied the benefits of, be excluded from participation in or be subjected to discrimination” in any program or activity. Individuals who are protected under these statutes include those with physical, sensory, or learning disabilities and other disabilities, such as health impairments or psychological impairments.
Typical accommodations provided by our office include:
- Alternative Test Administration
- Books on Tape/Textbooks Scanned to CD
- Note-taking Services
