Disability Resources

Committed to providing an accessible learning environment to all our students.

What We Do

We are committed to advocating for an accessible learning environment for all our students. Future students and current students with documented disabilities affecting mobility, learning and physical or mental health can register to access resources.

These resources include, but are not limited to, providing information regarding funding, accessing accommodations and technology, and advocating for accessibility. Appropriate academic accommodations are determined on an individual basis, after you have provided the necessary documents to Disability Resources.  We can also help you get the necessary documents.
