Fairmont State University is committed to creating and maintaining a community that reflects diversity and improves opportunities for all, including qualified individuals with disabilities. Fairmont State University is committed to the principle that no qualified individual with a disability shall, on the basis of disability, be excluded from participation in or be denied the benefits of the services, programs, or activities of the University, or be subjected to discrimination.
The Office of Accessibility Services at Fairmont State University facilitates academic, housing, and dietary accommodations. This is done through an interactive process so that each students accommodations are individualized to their needs. Accommodations are provided on a case-by-case basis. To qualify, the student must have a current condition that substantially limits a major life activity, and the accommodation request must be necessary and reasonable. A diagnosis or provider recommendation, in and of itself, does not automatically qualify one for accommodations.
