An individual with a disability is a person who has a qualifying physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, or who has a history of such impairment, or who is regarded as having such impairment. Employment or academic standards are not lowered for persons with disabilities. Rather, an individual with a disability must be qualified to perform the essential functions of the relevant job or academic program, either with or without reasonable accommodations.
