It is the policy of Alcorn State University not to discriminate on the basis of disability. Alcorn State University Department of Health & Disability Services has adopted an internal grievance procedure providing for prompt and equitable resolution of complaints alleging any action prohibited by the Americans with Disability Act (ADA). Section 504 states that all public-funded universities, community colleges, and vocational schools that receive federal funding from the U.S. Department of Education are required to make their programs accessible to students with disabilities. The Law and Regulations may be examined in the office of Health & Disability Services, 601-877-6460, who has been designated to coordinate the efforts of Alcorn State University to comply with Section 504 .
Any person who believes she or he has been subjected to discrimination on the basis of disability may file a grievance under this procedure. It is against the law for Alcorn State University to retaliate against anyone who files a grievance or cooperates in the investigation of a grievance.
