The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) provide comprehensive civil rights and protections for persons with disabilities. “No otherwise qualified person with a disability in the United States . . . shall, solely on the basis of disability, be denied access to, or the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity provided by any institution receiving federal financial assistance.” A “qualified student” is defined as a student . . . “who meets the academic and technical standards required to admission or participation in the education program or activity.” (Source – Rehabilitation Act of 1973 – Section 504)

Uintah Basin Technical College may not discriminate in the recruitment, admission, educational process, or treatment of students with disabilities. Students must voluntarily disclose that they have a disability (self-identify), request accommodation, and provide documentation of their disability.
