Student Disability Services

The University provides access to educational programs for students with disabilities through Student Disability Services which is part of the Student Academic Support Services (SASS) office.  Coordinated services and reasonable academic accommodations are provided on a case by case basis.                     

In order to receive services, students must register with Student Disability Services, provide documentation for verifying disability, and meet with Student Disability Services staff.

If you are entering the University directly from high school, you will find differences in the way disability services are provided at the college level.  The Transition Information link will give you an overview of the differences, including your new responsibilities as a student.  Also feel free to talk to our staff about transitioning to college.
