Educational Rights

Lewis University complies with the rules governing the implementation of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) as passed by the 93rd Congress with the 1992 amendments and issued by the Department of Health, Education and Human Services. The compliance will be accomplished through procedures found in the Student Handbook.

Additionally, Lewis University recognizes and supports the standards set forth in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, and similar state laws which are designed to eliminate discrimination against qualified individuals with disabilities. Disabilities may include physical or mental impairments which substantially limit one or more of a person’s major life activities, and which necessitate modifications to the facilities, programs, or services of the University.
