Policy for Services to Students with Disabilities


The policy of ASU-Beebe is to comply with federal and state disability legislation. Reasonable accommodations will be made in policies, practices, services, and facilities to ensure equal opportunity for qualified persons with disabilities to participate in all educational programs and activities. The Coordinator of Disability Services has been designated as Arkansas State University-Beebe's Coordinator of Services to individuals with disabilities and is the university's compliance coordinator for Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Coordinator of Disability Services arranges for academic and non-academic support accommodations. The Coordinator of Disability Services is also the individual to whom concerns about physical access to facilities should be addressed.


Grievance Procedures


Any student who believes he or she has not been appropriately served or has been discriminated against should follow the grievance procedure as stated in the Student Handbook.


ADA /504 Grievance Procedures

Any qualified person with a disability who has a complaint about the way faculty or staff have responded to his/her accommodation requests, please contact the Coordinator of Disability Services/ADA Coordinator. Complaints should be made in writing to the Coordinator of Disability Services within 30 calendar days of the incident. Should the complaint be against the Coordinator of Disability Services/ADA Coordinator, then the complaint should be made in writing to one of the Title IX compliance officers. The coordinator will assist the person to work on a resolution to the complaint and may engage all parties involved in the concern. The coordinator will notify the student by letter within 15 calendar days of the resolution to the complaint. For complaints not resolved after this approach, the person will follow the formal grievance procedures set in place in the student handbook.*
