Students

Students with disabilities have the right to equal opportunities for education and participation in University activities. Students must meet or exceed the essential requirement of the University of Montana with or without reasonable accommodations. Students initiate the request for accommodations and services in a timely manner, communicate with faculty regarding accommodations, and work with their coordinators as needed.
