The primary mission of the Office of Academic Accessibility Services is to provide equal access to all opportunities for Mercy students and to enhance academic and personal development through advocacy, education, and accommodations. The Office is committed to enhancing students’ academic development and independence and will work with each student, one on one, to determine the need for adjustments.

|Who is responsible for equal access to academic accessibility services?||Mercy College of Ohio is committed to making individuals with disabilities full participants in its programs, services and activities through compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. It is the policy of Mercy College that no otherwise qualified individual with a disability shall be denied access to, the benefits of, or participation in, any program, service or activity offered by the college.
As such, individuals with disabilities have a right to request reasonable accommodations. Individuals will receive reasonable accommodations in order to fully participate in or benefit from the college’s programs, services and activities in a non-discriminatory, integrated manner.
All college representatives, including faculty, staff and students are responsible for the implementation of this policy and adherence to the principles of equal access.
|Are academic accessibility services confidential?||Documentation of disability is maintained in the Office of Academic Accessibility services, separate from students’ academic record. Information shared with the Office of Academic Accessibility services is kept confidential from all other college offices.|
Mercy College strives to create a supportive community that promotes awareness, sensitivity and understanding of students with disabilities. Watch Inside Mercy College and for emails about events and educational opportunities.
