Disability Support Resources
Under Section 504, Subpart E Postsecondary Education, of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act, institutions of higher education must provide reasonable accommodations to a student's known disability and may not deny equal access to the institution's programs, courses, and activities. Tape recording lectures is a reasonable accommodation for students whose documentation calls for this accommodation.
Faculty have the right to require a student who uses a tape recorder to sign an agreement for tape recording and present the form to the instructor.
