Help Is Available

The Office of Accessibility Services works closely with students with documented disabilities who may require reasonable accommodations with regard to academics, housing and medical-related parking.

We are available to assist students with questions about documentation guidelines. We also provide coaching support for students with ongoing academic and organizational needs. Our testing center arranges for students to use their approved accommodations for exams outside of the classroom.
