Access Solutions

Providing access solutions across the university community
In this Section

Equal access is individualized. 

Students will meet with a Disability Services staff member to have a conversation about the barriers experienced in the learning and/or living environments. To determine access solutions, additional information about essential standards for courses, programs, services, jobs, activities, and facilities may be requested. 

 

Access and Accommodations

Disability Services offers a variety of services and meets collaboratively with students to determine reasonable and appropriate accommodations. These may include accommodations related to: 

  • Testing  

  • Classroom Environment

  • Course Materials

  • Interpreting 

  • Notetaking 

  • Events on campus 

  • University Housing 

This is not an exhaustive list as appropriate accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis. If you have questions about accommodations, please inquire with our office.  

Housing Accommodations

All housing accommodation requests are considered on a case-by-case and space available basis, according to documented need and prevailing standards for reasonable accommodations. There is a separate and comprehensive process in place for all housing-related requests.  

There are additional components to a Housing Request that include documentation addressing the need for accommodation. When reviewing our Documentation Guidelines, please review the specific section that details what is needed for a housing request. Documentation is one component of a request, and a medical condition in itself does not necessarily qualify an individual for accommodations.   

Please review the deadlines listed below to plan appropriately for making a housing request. It is essential to contact Disability Services as soon as you believe you will need a housing accommodation.

Deadlines

We request that students seeking to make a housing request submit all required components by the following dates:  

  • June 1 for the Fall Semester 
  • October 1 for the Spring Semester 

Students who miss the above deadlines will have their requests reviewed by Disability Services on a rolling basis. Students should be aware that such requests may take up to four (4) weeks to be reviewed by Disability Services after all required components have been submitted.
