Claiming multiple disabilities, an art student is suing her private college to demand a math-free art degree, reports The Missoulian.
Hannah Valdez, who hopes to become a graphic artist, attends Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Montana. She’s flunked and dropped math classes required for a bachelor’s degree.
Her disabilities include Asperger’s syndrome, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and dyscalculia, which is a mathematics learning disability, said her attorney, Donald Harris.
Rocky Mountain admitted her even though college officials knew her SAT score for math placed her in the bottom 5 percent of all students, the lawsuit said.
The college is offering Valdez special tutoring by associate math professor Robyn Cummins.
