Who is eligible to be registered with DSS?
Students with documented disabilities are eligible to register with the Office of Disability Support Services. According to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), an individual with a disability is defined as a person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, a person who has a history or record of such an impairment, or a person who is perceived by others as having such an impairment.
Once a student is registered with the Office of Disability Support Services, they may request reasonable and appropriate accommodations to ensure access. Accommodations will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
