Access Service

Welcome to Access Service!

Access Service works collaboratively with our university community and stakeholders to facilitate the academic accommodation process.

The academic accommodation process is a collaborative process and a shared responsibility among all parties involved.

Access Service’s role in the academic accommodation process is to assess, establish, and implement appropriate academic accommodations for students who have a temporary or permanent disability.

Students who need academic accommodations are encouraged to contact Access Service as soon as possible.
