Academic Accommodations for Students with Disabilities
The Office of Student Accessibility Services, located in the Center for Academic Excellence, assists students who qualify for accommodations. All students seeking accommodations are required to contact Student Accessibility Services (SAS) to discuss eligible accommodations. The use of self-advocacy is encouraged and staff will work with students on the development of these skills.
Students requesting accommodations based on specific disabilities or neurodiversities should schedule an appointment with the Coordinator of Student Accessibility Services early in the semester or term. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act as amended, any student who presents appropriate documentation of a disability, or a condition warranting accommodations, will be provided with reasonable accommodations in accordance with University policy.
Before academic accommodations can be offered, it is the responsibility of the student to submit documentation for review.

Any student who disagrees with the eligibility and/or accommodation decisions made by the Coordinator of Student Accessibility Services has the right to file a grievance/complaint. Information is available by contacting the Section 504/A.D.A Compliance Officer at (603) 899-4162.
