Thank you very much for your prompt response. I just have one more question. The university has made it very clear that they will not accommodate this as "Walden’s position has not and won’t change. If you cannot meet the residency requirement, I encourage you to consider a program that does not require it."
If they get a demand letter and still don't accommodate it as according to them "We’ve had conversations about this issue with the highest level of governance overseeing higher education in America on behalf of students with similar disabilities to yours," would this be a federal suit that may require them to make the accommodation or a civil suit, assuming they won't comply.
