Arkansas Tech University is committed to ensuring access to academic programs, facilities, and activities for higher education to academically qualified individuals who have disabilities. Students with disabilities attending Tech will be integrated as completely as possible into the University community. Tech does not offer a specialized curriculum for students with disabilities nor does it assume the role of a rehabilitation center, but it does assume the responsibility for modifying campus facilities and procedures to accommodate individual needs where reasonable.
Tech is subject to and endorses both the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. This act provides a civil rights statue designed to prevent discrimination that qualified individuals with a disability shall not be denied access to any program or activity provided by any institution receiving federal financial assistance. The Affirmative Action Officer serves as the coordinator for these federal programs.
