Westminster College administers all of its educational programs, related support services and benefits in a manner which does not discriminate against a student or prospective student with regard to race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, physical or mental disability, or a person’s status as a disabled veteran or a veteran of the Vietnam era.
Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act provides comprehensive civil rights protections for qualified individuals with disabilities. An individual with a disability is a person who: has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity, or has a record of such an impairment or is regarded as having such an impairment. The College will provide reasonable accommodation as long as it does not fundamentally alter the nature of the program offered and does not impose an undue hardship such as those that cause a significant expense, difficulty, or are unduly disruptive to the educational process.
