Disability Resource Center

Apply for Services

Applications for eligibility may be obtained in Disability Resource Center, located on the first floor of Foster Hall. All applicants will be interviewed to discuss their interest in the program and services that may benefit the student. Services are available at no charge to participants.

Federal law defines a disability as “a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more life activities (e.g.: walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning).”

Documentation is needed to ensure proper services are granted. Visit with us to help you determine where you may obtain documentation.

Disabilities common among college students include Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Learning, Mobility, Medical, Psychiatric, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Visual Impairments, Deaf and Hard of Hearing, and Autism. 

Disability-related information is kept confidential in accordance with state and federal laws.

Academic accommodations must be requested each semester. The university asks that students make requests early in order to receive accommodations in a timely manner. As a general rule, accommodations will not be extended retroactively.
