Lourdes University is committed to providing alternatives and options for students with disabilities to ensure that University resources are as accessible as possible. We strive to maintain web pages that meet Section 508 guidelines for web accessibility. Section 508 requires that individuals with disabilities have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to that provided to individuals without disabilities, without placing an undue burden on the University.
