ADA and Reasonable Accommodations

The Disability Education Office (DEO) provides federally mandated reasonable accommodations to students who have disabilities. The Coordinator for the DEO, Joyce Girod, is located in Walter Hall 26 and the phone number is 740-826-6132.

In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, Muskingum University makes reasonable accommodations available to qualified students. Reasonable accommodations are provided at no charge to the student. Information received will not be used for any unlawful purpose.

Individuals with disabilities self-identify and make known their requests and, where required, provide documentation through the Disability Education Office.

Documentation should:

  • Be recent
  • Include qualifications of the evaluator
  • Include a diagnosis
  • Identify the substantial limitation(s) in one or more major life activities of the individual
  • Make recommendation(s) for specific related accommodations, and
  • Establish an evidence-based rationale that supports the need for such accommodation.

Persons seeking accommodation should submit their request, along with documentation where required, to Joyce Girod, Coordinator for the DEO, Walter Hall 26, Muskingum University, New Concord, OH 43762.

The provision of reasonable accommodation is based on review of submitted documentation where required and communication with the student. The provision of accommodation is determined on an individual basis and accommodations are facilitated by the Disability Education Office.
