  • Have a record of such an impairment; or
  • Be regarded or perceived as having such an impairment; and
  • Be able to perform the essential functions of the position with or without a reasonable accommodation.

Reasonable Accommodation

Reasonable accommodation with respect to employment matters should be coordinated with Human Resources.

Applicants and prospective employees with disabilities may submit requests for accommodation by contacting MSU ADA Coordinator listed below or sending an e-mail to recruitment@montana.edu
