Americans with Disabilities Act

Mississippi State University prohibits discrimination against qualified individuals with disabilities in employment and all other university programs, services, opportunities and activities. Specifically, the university’s policy is to comply with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

To that end, all qualified students with a disability, as defined by law, are eligible for reasonable accommodations or modifications that enable them to enjoy equal access to the University’s programs and services unless such accommodation or modification would result in an undue burden to the University or fundamentally alter the nature of a program.

To learn more about requesting an accommodation, please review the options below. If you believe you’ve experienced discrimination, harassment or retaliation on the basis of a disability, contact Brett Harvey, the Director of Title IX/EEO Programs. He can be reached at (662) 325-8124 or at brett.harvey@msstate.edu.
