Mobility Impairments

To obtain disability services and accommodations, students must register with DRS by providing current and appropriate medical or professional documentation and by meeting with an DRS coordinator for an intake appointment. Based on the individual student's documentation, the coordinator will assess the student's functional limitations and academic needs, and from those, will determine the necessary services and accommodations for which the student is eligible. After registering for classes each semester, students are responsible for scheduling an appointment with their coordinator to arrange reasonable accommodations and services for that semester.

In addition to the general services available to all students registered with DRS, the following services are available to students with mobility impairments, when necessary to their educational access:

  • Accessible parking permits
  • Strategic scheduling of classes to meet disability needs
  • Lab accommodations
  • Classroom relocation
