Ensuring appropriate accommodations and full access to the college experience.

Student Accessibility Services


Student accessibility services (SAS) advocates for students with accommodative needs, ensuring that all students receive the appropriate accommodations and full access to the college experience.

IMPORTANT UPDATE About Housing Accommodations

Students applying for accommodative singles or permission to live off-campus as an accommodation should be aware that due to limited physical staffing as a response to COVID-19, your request may take a bit longer to be reviewed. We ask for your patience and understanding. To receive more prompt service, please email completed forms, both the Student Housing Accommodation Request and Medical/Psychological Documentation Forms, to [email protected].
