Welcome to Student Accessibility Services

Documentation and information related to your disability are kept confidential within our office.  We only share limited information needed to ensure the effective provision of accommodations. 

  • (e.g. student is eligible for certain accommodation or there is a barrier to access for a specific task/environment.)  

Please read all the information on this site regarding identification, documentation, and accommodation procedures carefully.   

The process below is only for students who are requesting an accommodation.  If you do not need an accommodation you do not need to connect with our offices, even if you identify as an individual with a disability.
