The Graduate School at Bridges is committed to supporting a diverse community that includes students with disabilities, and to meeting its obligations to such students under the law. To assist students to be able to participate in the various programs, services, and activities of the institution, the dean requires the support, cooperation, and partnership of faculty, other teaching staff, and administrators within the college community.

Accommodations for Students with Disabilities are legally mandated modifications or services that give a student with a disability an equal opportunity to benefit from the educational process.

Academic accommodations may include:

  • Changes to a classroom environment or task that permit a student with a disability to participate in the educational process,
  • Modifications to policies, practices, or procedures (e.g., reduced course load, extended time to degree, etc.),
  • Provision of auxiliary aids and services, and
  • Other adaptations or modifications that enable a student to enjoy the benefits and privileges of the program.

The Bridges Graduate School for Cognitive Diversity in Education admits students of any
race, color, national and ethnic origin, sexual preference, and gender identification to all the
rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students
at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin,
sexual preference, or gender identification in administration of its educational policies,
admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and other school-administered
