The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 states that all individuals have equal accessibility, including online instructional opportunities. In addition, ADA states that all online courses be fully compliant from the start of the study, which can be challenging.

Windsor University is obligated to provide the necessary support to all individuals in the Institute by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. Disabled applicants and students are advised to contact the Student Affairs Officer regarding any issues they face. Windsor University is obligated to provide the necessary support to aid them in their educational program without violating any federal or governmental law. Windsor University will maintain the confidentiality of this process.
