Service areas include admissions, academics, housing, employment, facilities accessibility, and social/personal issues related to disability. Individuals with disabilities who wish to receive services from AS are responsible for disclosing their disability to AS and should complete the registration process at least 6 weeks prior to the desired start date for most services.

Housing accommodations must be renewed annually via a survey sent out by Housing and Residential Life.
A student who wishes to appeal a decision can follow Accessibility Services' Grievance Process.
Contact AS as soon as possible and the office will collaborate with the student and faculty to ensure accommodations are being provided.
If you feel that the accommodation is a hindrance to implement, alters the core values of the course or program, or feel the accommodations cannot be implemented effectively, schedule a meeting with the Accessibility Services as soon as possible to discuss the concern. All assigned accommodations must be provided until such time as it is altered through mutual understanding reached through this interactive process.
A staff member will inquire about the nature and impact of a student’s disability, past accommodations, and any disability related barriers. AS values a collaborative process while working with students to determine reasonable and appropriate accommodations.
