Although certain facilities are not fully physically accessible to handicapped persons, Wartburg College will take such means as are necessary to ensure that no qualified handicapped person is denied benefits, excluded from participation, or otherwise subject to discrimination because Wartburg College facilities are physically inaccessible to or unusable by handicapped persons. The accessibility standard required by federal law for “existing facilities” is that the recipient’s program or activity, when viewed in its entirety, must be readily accessible to handicapped persons. Wartburg College may meet this standard through such means as reassignment of classes or other services to accessible locations, redesign of equipment, assignment of aides, alteration of existing facilities, and construction of accessible facilities. Wartburg College is not required to make structural changes in existing facilities where other methods are sufficient to comply with the accessibility standard described here.
Because scheduling classes and arranging housing in accessible facilities may require reasonable advance planning, handicapped students should identify themselves to the Pathways associate for testing and disability services within 30 days of acceptance for admission or as soon as reasonably possible and indicate the kind of accommodation needed. Pathways is in the Vogel Library, third floor, or can be reached at 319-352-8615.
