Accommodation Information for Students and Employees

Furman is committed to providing individuals with access to all University programs, activities, and facilities. Students and employees with a diagnosed disability may be entitled to reasonable academic, housing and/or workplace accommodations under the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. A reasonable accommodation is a modification or change in the academic atmosphere, the work environment, or the way things are usually done that provides equal access to an educational program, allows someone to perform job functions or otherwise provides equal access to benefits available to other individuals in the educational environment or workplace. Examples of reasonable accommodations may include, but are not limited to: acquiring or modifying adaptive equipment, extended time for test-taking, job restructuring, modified schedules, providing note-takers or interpreters, removing readily achievable physical barriers, and providing assistive technology.


Students who wish to request accommodations should contact the Student Office for Accessibility Resources (SOAR) .


Furman employees who wish to request accommodations for a disability should contact Kristen Davis in Human Resources. The University will provide a reasonable accommodation for the disability of a qualified applicant or employee with a disability unless the accommodation would change the essential functions of a position or impose an undue hardship.
