ADMISSIONS AND RECRUITMENT

Admissions and Recruitment

Qualified handicapped persons may not, on the basis of handicap, be denied
admission or be subjected to discrimination in admission or recruitment.
Institutions may not make preadmission inquiry as to whether an applicant
for admission is a handicapped person, but, after admission, may make
inquiries on a confidential basis as to handicaps that may require
accommodation.

Academic Adjustments

Universities shall make such modifications to academic requirements as
necessary to ensure that requirements do not discriminate or have the effect
of discriminating, on the basis of handicap, against an otherwise qualified
handicapped applicant or student.  Academic requirements that the instructor
can demonstrate are essential to the program of instruction being pursued by
such student or to any directly related licensing requirement will not be
regarded as discriminatory within the meaning of this section.

	  Modifications may include changes in time permitted for the
	  completion of degree, and adaptation of the manner in which
	  specific courses are conducted.

Universities shall take such steps as are necessary to ensure that no
handicapped student is denied the benefits of, excluded in participation in,
or otherwise subjected to discrimination under the education program or
activity operated by the school because of the absence of educational
auxiliary aids for students with impaired sensory, manual, or speaking
skills.
