Disability Support Services

Disability Support Services provides a variety of academic support services for eligible students. Eligible students are entitled to reasonable accommodations that allow them to access educational programs and other services.

Students need to provide documentation to support the presence of a disability. These documents should provide a clear diagnostic statement of the disability and information on the functional impact of that disability. It should also include a description of current and past accommodations, services, and/or medications and effectiveness of those medications. Documents such as an Individual Education Plan (IEP), 504 Plan and/or current evaluation may be submitted for consideration.
