I thought TESU offered you the COM-210 Public Relations, Thought and Practice TECEP? What was the issue with this course?

Also, what is Title VIII? I thought the ADA had only five titles? Has this changed?

Just so everyone is aware. The ADA lady, Laura is fantastic. It's the Dean that is giving the ADA department a hard time.

Sorry I meant Civil Rights title, etc. There is an ofifical form for the Department of Justice Civil Rights division to file discrimination against hard of heaaring. Which I did.

Com 210 was one of the 3 options. And they did offer COM-210, but they are also required to offer a "class choice" or a full waiver in addition to it. Which they both required public speaking. COM210 is just an exam, which they have to offer an alternative to in addition to learning it in addition.

So after I filed the official complaint with the DOJ; TESU took it seriously and finally gave me a real waiver after some back and forth. I had to tell them I was about to follow up with a lawyer. Fastest responses I’ve ever seen from them. They’re in saving as mode. I got an email from the head of the ADA department apologizing that the dean didn’t understand university policy and the law correctly.

They gave me the waiver. Just took two months and the department of justice lol

So an update on this. TESU is backtracking a lot. I'm getting a lot of apologies from multiple people at TESU. They are bending over backwards now. But I decided to withdraw anyways. TESU even offered me extra time in the terms too lol

When I asked for legal help that they are obligated to give me 2 months ago they should've done it, instead of me having to file an official government complaint. It's a shame I already spent about $300 on TESU.

The University of Maine (UMPI) who I applied to I asked before my application process and they were on it, 100% with a plan to tackle the loss of hearing immediately.

It's good to know that there's a school willing to bend over backwards to help right from the start.  I imagine this will come up again, and we know where to send people.

I agree. I also researched alternatives for when the schools aren't helping, just in case.

Davar is by far the most accommodating of the alternative credits.
