The University is committed to the full participation of students in all programs. Disability Support Services (DSS) is a catalyst for facilitating students' equity and excellence in education, maximizing their potential while helping them develop and maintain independence. DSS philosophy encourages self-awareness, self-determination, self-advocacy, and independence while providing a safe, caring, and respectful environment that cultivates growth and learning.

Disability Support Services provides a range of individualized support services for students with disabilities.  The office works with faculty, staff, and students, on- and off-campus, to create and implement appropriate accommodations that allow all students an equal opportunity inside the classroom and around campus.

For information about the services and support available to our students, please visit the Disability Support Services webpage and Reasonable Modifications of Policies, Practices, and Procedures for Students with Disabilities. Both websites provide information about eligibility for disability services, policies and procedures for requesting modifications to accommodate disabilities, examples of accommodations, our confidentiality policy, and grievance procedures.
