The university provides individuals with disabilities reasonable accommodations to participate in educational programs, activities, and services. Students with disabilities requiring accommodations to participate in class activities or meet course requirements should self-identify with Counseling, Accessibility, and Psychological Services (CAPS) at 810-762-3456 as early as possible.

The Faculty Handbook provides information which outlines policies and procedures for faculty members in meeting the guidelines outlined in the Rehabilitation Act, Section 504 and the Americans with Disabilities Act. It also describes the role faculty in creating and maintaining an inclusive environment for students with disabilities.
