The Office for Disability Services coordinates accommodations for students with disabilities. Its main purpose is to provide academic accommodations and support services and to promote a supportive learning environment.
The mission of the program is to promote student independence, program accessibility and a psychologically supportive environment that will help students achieve their educational objectives.
In order to receive disability services students must submit documentation of the disability to the Office for Disability Services. Once the documentation is received, an intake meeting is scheduled, at which time appropriate accommodations are determined.
Students are responsible for submitting an assessment report that:
- Is completed by a qualified professional such as a medical doctor or licensed psychologist.
- Contains the evaluator's name and title and assessment date.
- Was completed within the last three years.
- Identifies the disability, describes the limits it imposes, and includes recommended accommodations.
