Disability Resources for Students

The Disability Resources for Students Office provides, arranges, and coordinates academic accommodations and support services to qualified students with disabilities to enable them to fully access the educational opportunities at The University of Memphis. To establish eligibility for disability accommodations and services, students are required to register with the Disability Resources for Students Office and provide current medical or psycho-educational documentation of the disability from a professional who is appropriately qualified to diagnose the particular disability.

Disability information is strictly confidential, is not released without written consent, and does not appear on transcripts or any permanent record of the University.

Students must follow established university procedures for obtaining accommodations and services. Specific accommodations and services are determined on an individual basis and are based on documented functional limitations resulting from the disability. Services available include orientation to disability services, assessment of disability related needs, academic accommodation plans each semester, test accommodations, books on tape, note-takers, readers, scribes, interpreters, Braille, enlarged print, loan of adaptive aids and special equipment, adaptive computer lab, guidance and counseling, adapted campus housing, accessible parking, and limited campus shuttle service.

Since some services require advance notice, applicants are requested to provide sufficient notice to Disability Resources for Students of anticipated needs and expected date of enrollment. For more detailed information, please contact the Director of Disability Resources for Students at 678-2880.
