Disability Services provides...

  • A range of services and accommodations to allow persons with disabilities to participate in educational programs and activities.  Reasonable accommodations are modifications or alterations intended to provide equal access or improve accessibility to physical, programmatic, and academic areas of the University. 
  • Services to the University community (faculty, staff, parents and all students) for consultation on a broad range of disability issues and to manage the needs of students with temporary disabilities (e.g., mobility limitations and transient but severe illnesses).

Office of University Diversity and Inclusion

The University Diversity and Inclusion office is responsible for assisting in arranging reasonable accommodations and for identifying resources on campus for students with disabilities.

Qualified students with disabilities must register with the office to be eligible for services. The office MUST have current documentation on file in order to provide services. Documentation includes a diagnosis of a specific disability by a professional qualified in the area of the disability, states how the disability substantially limits a major life activity and explains how the disability affects the student’s academic performance.

Services are identified to meet the needs of individuals based on their specific disabilities, e.g. depression, physical or learning disability, and may include note takers, test readers/scribes, adaptive technology training, brailed materials, or other necessary accommodations.

Requests for accommodations should be submitted at least TWO MONTHS before services should begin; however, if you have a current accommodation need, please contact the University Diversity and Inclusion staff immediately.

Students may voluntarily identify themselves to the instructor for a referral to the University Diversity and Inclusion office.

Service Request Forms

In order to provide appropriate accommodations for students with disabilities, individuals (new and returning students) must complete a Accommodation Request Form every semester services are needed. New students additionally must request their medical provider or physician to complete the Disability Impairment and Assessment form.

Please choose the request form that applies to your student status.
