Services for Students with Disabilities
Students who would like to request services and/or accommodations must register with Disability and Access Services (DAS) and provide documentation by a licensed professional attesting to the nature of their disability. The requirements for disability documentation and how to apply for specific types of accommodations are discussed below.
DAS utilizes an interactive process to determine accommodations, including documentation and information gathering through direct communication with individual students. We believe inclusion for disabled people is a social justice matter. Our approach to accommodations is to assess environmental barriers and limitations, not limitations of the disability or individual.
Please note that requesting an accommodation does not guarantee that it will be granted and the accommodation provided is not required to match the requested accommodation. If a specifically requested accommodation alters fundamental course or program requirements or is otherwise unreasonable, DAS may offer an alternative accommodation. If any and all accommodations would alter fundamental course or program requirements, or if the student and DAS cannot agree on an accommodations plan for the student, DAS may deny the accommodations request.
For further information about documentation or the accommodations process, consult Disability Access Services at [email protected].
