Health Conditions and Disabilities

Students with disabilities and health conditions add to the diversity of our University community. This broadens our understanding and appreciation for the contributions of each individual.

Disability Services provide leadership and guidance regarding accommodations and access, which requires a collaborative relationship among all members of the university community. Students accessing support services are required to have their health professional complete the Access to Assistance for Students with Disabilities/Health Condition (PDF 90.3 KB) form before making an appointment.
