Services for students who have physical, sensory, attention and learning disabilities are provided by the Coordinator of Disability Resources through Advising, Career and Learning Services. Disability Resources will help students with physical, perceptual, learning, ADHD and/or psychological disabilities to compensate for disabilities through accommodations and alternative technologies. In order to receive accommodations students must register with Disability Resources and provide current documentation.
Examples of Accommodations that are available through Disability Resources include testing accommodations, note takers, obtaining books and course materials in alternate formats and voice activated software.
Disability Resources will assist students in advocating for their needs with Residential Life and other University Departments as needed. Disability Resources works with all staff and faculty to remove physical and attitudinal barriers.
Marymount California University has a process for addressing issues regarding the requirements of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the ADA. Individuals are encouraged to attempt to resolve grievances using the University process. However, individuals have the right to file any grievance directly to the Office of Civil Rights (OCR). Complaints filed with the OCR must be filed within 180 days from when the incident occurred.
