NationsUniversity is in compliance with all requirements imposed by or pursuant to Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. NationsUniversity does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin in it activities, programs, or employment policies in accordance with federal, state, and local laws. It also complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, as amended.
NationsUniversity recognizes that learning styles vary, and learning diﬀerences exist among students. This can be due to physical or psychological conditions. Any student who requests specific accommodations should submit documentation verifying the need for eligibility under the American Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973. This documentation should be sent to the NU Registrar and/or Director of Advising office at least 15 days prior to the beginning of a course or program. Documentation should include:
• The credentials of a qualified professional, such as a physician or licensed psychologist or counselor who can attest to the need for accommodation based on a clinical diagnosis.
o A qualified professional’s description of the following:
o the nature of the disability and the accommodation requested;
o the applicant’s current functional limitations; and
o projected progression or stability of the disability.
• Recommendations for accommodations.
NU will review all requests for accommodation and will determine if the accommodations can be met reasonably and feasibly. NU will discuss a plan for accommodations with the student and with any involved faculty members. While NU desires to assist all students, certain services are not feasible and cannot be provided by the University. For example, NU is not able to provide personal tutors or assist with technology. It cannot compromise its academic standards or course components. Students may appeal any ruling regarding accommodations by filing a formal grievance using the University’s grievance procedure.
NationsUniversity encourages students to act in an ethical manner in their academic studies as deﬁned in the institution’s Honor Code. Violations of the Honor Code may not be intentional, for students come from a wide range of cultural and academic backgrounds where diﬀerent standards and deﬁnitions of “cheating” exist. However, students are responsible for reading and understanding the Honor Code and will be held to the standards outlined in it.
NationsUniversity requires that all students complete assignments and exams in an ethical manner in keeping with the values of NU and the Honor Code. Honor Code violations include:
