Accessibility Services

The mission of Accessibility Services is to advocate for and facilitate equal access to educational opportunities for students with qualified disabilities or conditions.


General Overview

Disability is defined by the ADA as “a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities, a record of such an impairment or being regarded as having such an impairment.”

In addition, specific medical conditions may qualify under the definition of disability for the purpose of receiving academic accommodations.

  • The student must register with Accessibility Services by completing the Accessibility Services Request Form and supply appropriate documentation outlining the nature of the disability or condition and recommendations for academic accommodation. You may use the Release of Documentation Form to obtain appropriate documentation.
  • In an on-going interactive, collaborative process, the student and Accessibility Coordinator will determine the reasonable academic accommodations for which the student is eligible, how and when they will be provided, and who is responsible for providing them.
  • An Accessibility Coordinator compiles the approved academic accommodations into a Notice of Accommodation (NOA) and distributes it electronically to the student’s instructors each semester.
  • The student and professor are encouraged discuss the accommodations as they pertain to that class.
  • If the student needs to make changes or adjustments, they must contact an Accessibility Coordinator.

In order to request accommodations for a documented disability or condition, please contact Accessibility Services.
