Providing Aids and Services

We recognize and value diversity in our campus community and are committed to providing equal access and opportunities to qualified students with various disabilities.

We provide comprehensive services in a manner that promotes respect and self-advocacy. In addition, we comply with university policy, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disability Act of 1990 with its amendments of 2008.

If you are a student needing to request accommodations, please register with us. We can discuss your disability-related requests for aids and services.
