Disability Services for the MUSC College of Health Professions
Commitment to Students with Disabilities
The Medical University of South Carolina (“MUSC” or the “University”) is committed to ensuring that no otherwise qualified individual with a disability is excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or subjected to discrimination in University programs or activities due to his or her disability. The university is fully committed to complying with all requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and its amendments (the “ADA”) and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (“Section 504”) and to providing equal educational opportunities to otherwise qualified students with disabilities. Disability support services are available to otherwise qualified students with disabilities to ensure equal access to the University’s programs and services. Services may include making academic and/or non-academic accommodations for students.
The College of Health Professions is dedicated to providing equal opportunity and access for every student. Accommodations will be made in response to the specific disability and on a case by case basis. Students are highly encouraged to make requests for accommodations at the beginning of the first semester or before. This gives your professors the time needed to make arrangements and ensure you receive the accommodations needed.
