Disability Services

The Office of Disability Services is housed in the Sara Bea Learning Center for Students with Disabilities. The Office of Disability Services provides reasonable accommodations for qualified students with disabilities. To become eligible for accommodations, a student must register with the office by providing recent documentation of their disability. Registered students are responsible for requesting accommodations each semester.

The purpose of reasonable accommodations is to provide qualified students with disabilities an equal opportunity to be successful. Disability Services does not provide “treatment” for a disability. Instead, reasonable accommodations give a student the opportunity to demonstrate academic achievements by reducing or eliminating the barriers that may be caused by the interaction of a disability and a traditional academic environment. Accommodations provided include, but are not limited to, testing accommodations, note-taking, and alternative formatted textbooks.

If you would like more information, the Office of Disability Services will hold an open house on the Friday afternoon of Welcome Weekend, from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., or you can call or email the Office of Disability Services.
