at Fresno State

In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, section 504, no qualified person will be denied access to, participation in, or the benefits of, any program or activity operated by the University because of disability.

These commitments are supported by the University’s administration and by federal law.
