Policy Statement

Accommodations for People with Disabilities

In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as well as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), RISD attempts to make its classes, programs, events and services accessible to everyone. Reasonable accommodations are made for people with disabilities or special needs who request assistance. These accommodations may include relocation of the class, program, event or service, if necessary; duplication in an accessible location; provision of a comparable substitute at a fully accessible institution; and/or interim measures authorized by federal law.

If you need assistance to participate in any class, program, event or service offered at RISD, please contact Disability Support Services.
