Students with disabilities are entitled to accommodations designed to “level the playing field.” Post-secondary institutions and testing services must therefore provide appropriate accommodations to ensure they are not discriminating based on a student’s disability. While some rights and protections guaranteed by these laws terminate when a student with disabilities graduates high school, post-secondary institutions and higher education entrance testing services (ETS, GRE, LSAT) have certain obligations under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the American’s with Disabilities Act to provide reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities.
