Mobility Impairments

To obtain disability accommodations and services, students must register with DRS by providing current and appropriate medical or professional documentation and by meeting with a DRS Coordinator for an Initial 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 accommodations and services 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 accommodations are available to students with mobility impairments, when necessary to their educational access:

  • Accessible parking permits (via Parking Services)
  • Strategic scheduling of classes to meet disability needs
  • Lab accommodations
