National American University strives to make its programs accessible to all individuals, in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Its purpose is to create and maintain an environment in which students may achieve their fullest potential, limited to the least extent possible by individual disabilities. Such disabilities include physical or mental impairment that substantially limits major life functions. All faculty, staff, and students of the university are expected to adhere to this philosophy of equal access to educational opportunity and to assume broad responsibility for its implementation.
Disclosure of a disability is not required, but if disclosed, it is the responsibility of the individual to seek available assistance and make his/her needs known.
The system student services office is the designated office at National American University that maintains disability-related documents, certifies eligibility for services, and determines and provides reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities. It is located in Rapid City, South Dakota. All requests for accommodation, documentation reports, and inquiries should be directed to:
Dr. Meg Whiston, System Director of Learner Services
5301 South Highway 16
Rapid City, SD 57701
For more details regarding the university's policies and procedures for providing reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities, please see the System Student Handbook.
