Know Your Rights
In compliance with Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act, Marymount Manhattan College provides support for students with learning, physical, medical, and/or psychological disabilities. Students with disabilities or traits that make them eligible for support may submit an accommodation request. To learn more please visit our How to Register and FAQ pages, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or drop by our office in Nugent Hall 353 (inside the library on the 3rd floor of Nugent Hall).
Students who wish to request accommodations should self-identify to the Office of Disability Services before the start of a semester or after a qualifying event. Please review the following timelines:
To ensure that academic accommodations are in place by the start of the semester, students should submit academic accommodation requests to the Office of Disability Services no later than August 1 for the fall semester, no later than January 1 for the spring semester, and no later than May 1 for the summer semesters.
So that housing accommodation requests may be reviewed before housing placements are finalized, students should submit housing accommodation requests to the Office of Disability Services no later than June 1 for fall housing, no later than January 1 for spring housing, and no later than May 1 for summer housing.
Self-identifying as having a disability and seeking accommodations are personal decisions. If a student requests accommodations at Marymount Manhattan College, they are responsible for completing the process for registering with the Office of Disability Services (ODS). Although ODS can assist students with disabilities with many tasks, it is up to the student to take the initiative and remain actively involved in the accommodation process. Marymount Manhattan College does not assume the responsibility of identifying students who may be eligible for accommodations. It is therefore solely the student’s responsibility to disclose and define their disability and their need for accommodations.
Please note that while the Office of Disability Services is committed to providing accommodations to remove barriers to access, College resources and staff cannot be expected to meet all of a student’s needs associated with managing a disability. We therefore expect and encourage students, where applicable, to follow appropriate health regimens, secure appropriate medical and therapeutic assistance from qualified practitioners at MMC or in the New York City area, and arrange any necessary support services (i.e. transportation, individual monitoring of needs, financial assistance, personal care) that our college does not provide.
