  2. BACKGROUND

    University Extension (UNEX) is a University activity subject to the University's affirmative action program. UNEX does not discriminate on the basis of handicap against any qualified handicapped persons by excluding them from participation in, denying them the benefits of, or otherwise subjecting them to discrimination under any University program or activity.

    Qualified handicapped students or participants in University programs or activities may not, on the basis of handicap be excluded from any course of study or other program or activity.

  3. POLICY

    University Extension is a self-supporting activity. UNEX has access to state funds for core supportive services for qualified handicapped students only when the handicapped student who enrolls in a UNEX course is also admitted to the University. These monies will be used solely to provide the auxiliary teaching aids the student requires, i.e., taped texts, or interpretors.

    University Extension will admit qualified handicapped persons to its courses. If no state monies are available, University Extension will endeavor to provide the appropriate academic support services for any enrolled handicapped person. In the event course enrollment fees are not sufficient to provide auxiliary teaching aids, University Extension reserves the right to cancel the course. UNEX will endeavor to notify all enrolled handicapped persons of the financial circumstances prior to cancellation so that the handicapped person may make alternative arrangements which would permit UNEX to continue the course offering.
