The Accessibility Resource Center recognizes individuals with disabilities as an integral part of a diverse community and is committed to the provision of comprehensive resources to the University community (faculty, staff, and students) in order to create equitable, inclusive, and practical learning environments.
How do I begin?
If you were using classroom accommodations while you were in High School, you may have an Individualized Education Plan, or I.E.P.
Please ask your High School Office to email to the student /student’s family the signed version of the IEP, and that way the student and/or student’s family can email it to us.
Our hope is to provide a smooth transition into your college experience.
