Technical Standards

Duquesne University is committed to admitting qualified students without regard to religious preference, sex, race, color, national or ethnic origin, non-performance-related handicap or veteran's status.  In preparation for certain professional health care roles, program applicants and continuing students in the program must be able to meet the cognitive, affective and psychomotor requirements of the curriculum.  Graduates must have knowledge, skills and attitudes to function in a wide variety of clinical situations and to render a wide spectrum of patient care.

If you are applying for enrollment in the schools of Health Sciences, Nursing or Pharmacy, please review the technical standards related to classroom, laboratory and clinical/fieldwork environments: 

If you have any questions, please contact your school of interest.  On an individual basis, reasonable accommodations will be considered for persons with documented disabilities; however, students must be able to perform in an independent manner.  Students requesting accommodation should contact the Duquesne University Office of Special Student Services at 412.396.6657/6658 or specstudentserv@duq.edu.
