ADA Policy, Learning Accommodations & Disabilities Services

Disability Policy

City Vision University is in compliance with all relevant ADA policies for universities, including the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). If students have a qualified disability under these acts, including intellectual disabilities, they may contact the City Vision University Student Services office at to request any reasonable accommodations they may need.

Along with their request, they should fax supporting medical documentation of their disability to (816) 760-2084. This documentation could either come from a doctor, or could be in the form of a document like an IEP or ISP. While relevant faculty members may be informed about accommodations that have been granted to a student with a disability, all personal documentation related to that disability is kept confidential, as with all student records, and is accessible only by authorized administrators and staff.

This documentation should include at minimum the following:

  • name or type of disability (i.e., diagnosis)

  • the limitations caused by the disability

  • length of time the student will be disabled

  • the services or accommodations (such as exam or course extensions) that the student will need while in college

It would be helpful if it also included information on the overall barriers and problems that the student may have in college. Note that we may consider alternatives to medical documentation in extraordinary circumstances.

We aim to make all reasonable learning accommodations for disabilities. However, we are not able to grant accommodations until we have specific documentation of a disability. One example is our late policy accommodations for students with documented disabilities. If you have any questions about our policies and services for students with disabilities, email
