Support Services for Students with Disabilities

As an institution of higher education, Arcadia University has the responsibility of informing students with disabilities about the process of accessing reasonable accommodations. It is the student’s responsibility to initiate academic accommodations and services and to provide appropriate documentation in order to qualify for academic accommodations. To receive classroom accommodations or any other special services or consideration due to a disability, all students must initially identify themselves with the Office of Academic Development’s Disability Support Services (DSS) in Knight Hall.

For each subsequent semester that they are enrolled at Arcadia University graduate students should meet with DDS to prepare the letters of accommodation for their classes. Ideally this should occur after a student registers for classes, but it should occur at least three weeks before classes begin in order to put the necessary accommodations in place before the start of the semester. Students do not need to provide new documentation for every semester, unless they require accommodations that are not supported by their documentation on file.
