Students With Disabilities

Prism Career Institute provides reasonable and appropriate accommodations in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act for individuals with documented disabilities who request and demonstrate the need for accommodation on a case-by-case basis as required by law.

To be eligible for disability-related services on campus, applicants are responsible for identifying themselves and disclosing information about the disability to the Campus Director at the time of enrollment. The Campus Director will assess the request for accommodations and inform the student as to whether or not the student’s request(s) can be accommodated. Certain job competencies may be considered so essential to the professional practice in the field that some accommodations may not be available.

Once eligibility has been established, the student and a staff member will work to make the reasonable and appropriate approved accommodations. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, a personal has a disability if he or she has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities (e.g. walking, standing, seeing, speaking, hearing, breathing, learning, working, or taking care of oneself), has a record of such impairment, or is regarded as having such impairment.
