Equal Access and Non-Discrimination


Colorado State University is committed to the non-discrimination and equal access mandates set forth by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), as amended. Unlike the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) that governs elementary and secondary education, Section 504 and the ADA do not guarantee a student will graduate. Instead, as civil rights legislation, these two mandates prohibit discrimination based on disability or handicap. Accommodations and modifications are made so that otherwise qualified students with disabilities have an equal opportunity to participate in or benefit from the programs and activities provided and sponsored by Colorado State University. For more information on the university's commitment to non-discrimination requirements in educational programs, contact the Equal Opportunity Office, 101 Student Services, (970) 491-5836.
