Must postsecondary institutions provide accommodations for prospective student visitors or their family members?

Printable Version

Yes, it is the responsibility of the postsecondary institution to provide reasonable accommodations to ensure that a campus program or event is accessible to a participant with a disability. For example, prospective students and their family members who are visiting the campus for a college preview day have the right to reasonable disability-related accommodations.
