Requesting Services

To receive services, students complete an intake appointment in the Disability Services office and provide documentation of disability. Individualized academic adjustments will then be determined. Please note some services may require six weeks or more to arrange. Contact the Disability Services office as early as possible in your educational planning to avoid delays in service.
