Purpose of Disability Services for Students

The University’s Disability Services works to ensure that qualified students, whether incoming or current with a disability are provided with reasonable accommodations that enable that student to participate fully in the activities, programs, services and benefits provided to all students. In conjunction with the University’s Human Resources Department and other University offices, Disability Services also promotes the University’s compliance with applicable disability laws and regulations, including the Americans with Disabilities Act (as amended) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.

If you are looking for resources or events as a current student, check out our Current Students tab for details and information. If you are an incoming or current Spider applying for a Disability Services accommodation, check out our Incoming Students tab for resources and guides.
