Disability Support Services, Metro
Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Metropolitan Campus, in accordance with the policies underlying Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, works to ensure that reasonable accommodations are implemented for enrolled students with documented disabilities to function in the academic environment. All admitted students are judged by the appropriate admissions officer to have the ability to succeed academically, and all students are required to meet the same academic standards. At the same time, FDU recognizes that documented disabilities and potential learning differences may require accommodations. We are committed to helping all students develop fully and complete successfully their degree requirements.
As a result, FDU has implemented varying degrees of services and accommodations for students with disabilities. All students may apply for accommodations through the Office of the Campus Executive. Additionally, FDU provides two unique, comprehensive programs that address the academic needs of students with specific learning issues. The Center for Psychological Services houses the COMPASS program, a program specifically designed to meet the comprehensive needs of students with Asperger’s syndrome. And, the Regional Center for College Students with Learning Disabilities provides academic intervention and support for students with specific learning disabilities in reading, writing and/or math.
