If You Have a Disability
Students with documented disabilities follow the same admissions process as those of other freshmen and transfer students. However, we encourage you to contact our Accessibility Services Office as early as possible to ensure a smooth transition to Central Missouri.
Eligibility for Services
Persons eligible for academic accommodations must have a disability as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act and be enrolled in one or more hours of study in UCM courses
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 provides for equal opportunity to persons with disabilities. Both ADA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act define an individual with a disability as a person:
Who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, or
Who has a record of such impairment, or
Who is regarded as having such impairment.
If a disability exists, reasonable appropriate accommodations are determined to create equal opportunity.
