Services Not Offered

In providing accommodations, federal law does not require the University of Utah to lower its academic standards, alter the essential elements of courses, or to make adjustments that would fundamentally alter the nature of a service, program, or activity.

The ADA regulations do not require the University to screen or diagnose disabilities.  It is the student’s responsibility to assume all costs associated with obtaining an adequate diagnosis and current documentation of a disability.

The University of Utah is not required to provide personal attendants, bathroom assistance, individually prescribed devices, readers for personal use or study, devices of a personal nature, equipment including tape recorders, CD/MP3 players, hearing aids, computers, and specialized software.  It is a student’s responsibility to procure these services or equipment. 

Since tutoring is considered a personal aid, the Center for Disability & Access does not offer this as a service.  However, the University of Utah as a whole as well as individual Colleges and departments offer a number of low cost or free tutoring resources.

The primary tutoring resource on campus is offered through the Learning Center.
