Appropriate accommodations should be requested by the student after verification of his or her disability is received.

Services Provided

Support services provided by the Office of Disability Services includes: orientation and registration, intake and assessment, note taking, test administration with accommodations, Reader Services, computer and technology demonstrations for all students, physical adaptations inside and outside of the classroom, guidance and counseling, priority registration, and Interpreter Services.

Contact Disability Services prior to your enrollment at ASU. To qualify you must have a disability which substantially limits one or more major life activities or functions. Qualifying disabilities include, but are not limited to: learning, visual, hearing, physical disabilities, arthritis, attention deficit disorder, carpal tunnel syndrome, cancer, cardiac diseases, dyslexia, diabetes, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, and psychiatric disabilities including forms of depression.

The Goal of Disability Services

Arkansas State University Disability Services' goal is to provide students with disabilities access to resources that will enable them to manage daily activities in the university setting. Disability Services is committed to providing opportunities in higher education for students with disabilities who demonstrate reasonable ability for college success.

Although ASU does not offer a specialized curriculum for persons with disabilities or assume the role of a rehabilitation center, ASU offers a variety of support services so that students with disabilities are admitted and integrated as completely as possible into the university.

Responsibility is shared with the student for modifying campus facilities and programs to meet individual needs. For example, some students may need interpreters, whereas other students may hear or read lips well enough to use classroom note takers. In some cases, students may require both services.

Students registered with DS have access to resources that will enable them to manage daily activities in the university setting. ASU offers physical and technological access as well as auxiliary aids, accessible facilities, and reasonable accommodations for the classroom. Physical and programmatic access are also provided.
