ADA / 504 Compliance: Accommodations and COVID-19

In light of the University’s directives to implement remote instruction for the remainder of Spring Semester 2020 as a way to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, students, faculty, and staff with  disabilities need to continue to receive reasonable accommodations. Existing accommodations as well as other services may need to be modified to fit the remote format of work and classes. 

The Office of Equal Opportunity and Title IX, Disability Services for Students, Human Resource Services, UMOnline, Accessible Technology Services, UM Housing, and Mansfield Library will be working together to ensure that students, faculty and staff receive equal and full access to education, teaching, working, and learning resources while maintaining confidentiality and privacy.

Our commitment

The University of Montana values diversity, equity, and inclusion. We are committed to providing equal opportunities in education, employment, programs, activities, and services to everyone, including those with disabilities. The UM community works together to embrace the University's values by:

  • Making University-related meetings, courses, performances, and other events accessible. 
  • Ensuring digital content and information technology are accessible and usable. 
  • Responding to all accommodation and modification requests in a timely manner.
