ACCESSIBILITY & ACCOMMODATION FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES
LMM adheres to the principles of non-discrimination articulated in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and applicable federal, state and local laws. We will not discriminate against an applicant with a qualifying disability (as defined by the ADA), provided that they can perform the Associates Degree coursework with or without a reasonable accommodation. We will provide reasonable accommodation to applicants with a qualifying disability (as defined by the ADA), who have made us aware of their disability, provided that such an accommodation does not create an undue hardship for the school. We comply fully with the standards set by law concerning making our facilities and services accessible to people with disabilities.

Federal Law Regarding People with Disabilities – Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 – “No otherwise qualified handicapped individual in the United States…shall, solely by reason of his handicap, be excluded from the participation in, be denied benefits of, nor be subjected to discrimination under any program activity receiving federal financial assistance.”

Americans with Disability Act – ADA is a comprehensive Civil Rights Act protecting the rights of people with disabilities. The ADA prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in the areas of private employment, public accommodations and services, transportation, and telecommunications. The Americans with Disabilities Act also prohibits discrimination against a qualified individual with a disability with regard to admission to educational institutions or vocational training programs (public or private); job application procedures; hiring, advancement or discharge of employees; employee compensation; job training; and other terms, conditions and privileges of employment.

Obtaining an Accommodation

If you believe you need a reasonable accommodation, you must inform your Academic Advisor of your need. A student who wishes to receive an accommodation must self identify. Once you make your request, appropriate school staff will meet with you to discuss the precise limitations resulting from the disability and the potential accommodation we might make to help overcome those limitations. We will then determine whether the requested accommodation, or a reasonable alternative, is feasible without undue hardship on the agency and notify you of our findings. If your request is denied, you have the right to appeal the decision.
