The University is committed to creating an accessible academic community. The Disability Support Services (DSS) office grants accommodations for equal access to qualifying students with disabilities who request them. It is recommended that students seeking accommodations should contact the DSS office, by phone or email, as early as possible prior to the start of classes. Students may apply for DSS registration at any time throughout the semester, but allowing plenty of time will ensure that all accommodations are in place by the first day of classes. DSS staff will respond to calls and emails within twenty-four hours or on the following business day if the call or email was received outside of regular business hours. Students will then be guided through the DSS registration process.
Students who think they may have a disability, but who have never been evaluated, are encouraged to contact the DSS office for information on how to proceed. Diagnostic testing is not provided by the University, but a list of area specialists can be provided. Costs associated with evaluative testing are the responsibility of the student. Students needing temporary accommodations due to an injury or short-term illness should contact DSS as soon as possible to schedule a meeting.
Please note: academic programs that are FAA certified are subject to FAA regulations, and students are expected to meet program standards with or without accommodations. If you have any questions about specific program standards, you should consult with your advisor or contact Career Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or 928-777-6276.
