In order to provide equal access to opportunities for persons with disabilities, UTRGV provides accommodations as mandated by ADA and Section 504. The purpose of accommodations is to “level the playing field” and to ensure equal access to the University’s programs and services.

Accommodations provided are unique to each individual and are based on the nature of the disability and the resulting functional limitations.

Accommodations that are considered “unreasonable” are those that would result in a substantial change in an essential element of the curriculum, require a substantial alteration of a program or service, be an undue financial or administrative burden, or pose a direct threat to the health or safety of others.
