Grace Christian University is committed to serving students with disabilities, with the goal to ensure that every student who has a disability is protected from discrimination and provided with access to the needed services that will ensure equal access to all activities and programs pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
The University provides assistance to students with visual impairments, learning disabilities, mobility impairments, hearing impairments, chronic health conditions (including allergies), psychological disabilities and temporary disabilities so they may enjoy a complete range of academic and non-academic opportunities. These accommodations include:
- wheelchair accessible traditional style (one story) residence halls for men and women;
- Scan in/push button automatic doors to assist students on residence halls, student common spaces and the academic building;
- wheelchair accessible ramps within the Student Commons to access all spaces provided for any student;
- wheelchair ramp access to the chapel;
- large projector and flat screens in classrooms and chapel;
- spaces in classrooms for wheelchair accessibility.
In accordance with the spirit of the legislative updates to the ADA, documentation requirements vary by situation. Because each person’s situation is unique, students in need of physical accommodations should talk with the Student Affairs staff to ensure their needs are met.
In addition to physical accommodations, the University also seeks to serve students with learning disabilities in all academic program. Information for students in need of academic accommodations is available at https://gracechristian.edu/catalog_pages/academic-accommodations/.
