Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973

Section 504 is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in public and private programs and activities that receive financial assistance from the federal government. Section 504 guarantees students a free appropriate public education. Students who may not be eligible for services under the IDEA may be eligible for protection from discrimination under Section 504. Compliance oversight is provided by the United States Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights.
