Equal access makes equity possible

Equal access to education is achieved when barriers to learning are removed and students with disabilities are allowed to compete solely on the basis of their academic skills and abilities. Students with disabilities who need accommodations should contact SDS at 141 University Capitol Center. Students will need to submit a Request for Services and Documentation Review form and the appropriate documentation to SDS. After determining what accommodations are judged reasonable, the SDS office provides the student with a Student Academic Accommodation Request (SAAR) form. The student should also meet with the instructor (or exam committee chair or dissertation committee chair or the relevant faculty member) to provide him or her with a copy of the SAAR form and to make any necessary arrangements for the accommodations.
