The Student Disability Services 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 Student Disability Services 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 Student Disability Services of anticipated needs and expected date of enrollment.
