Student & Alumni

Disability Support

Disability Support Services are provided to students who qualify for such assistance under the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Academic accommodations may be arranged for students who qualify.  Students must follow the accommodation request process and meet with the Testing and Disability Services Specialist before accommodations can be arranged. If accommodations are necessary, a Letter of Accommodation will be prepared by the Testing and Disability Services Specialist for students to notify instructors. Students will also be required to contact the Disability Services Office each semester they wish to receive accommodations and provide a new Letter of Accommodation to instructors. We encourage students to contact the Testing and Disability Services Specialist as soon as possible each semester during office hours to discuss such matters in confidence.
