Stevenson University admits qualified students regardless of disability and welcomes the full participation of students with disabilities in all aspects of campus life. The Office of Student Success coordinates with various campus partners to ensure equal access to University programs, facilities and services.
Students with disabilities who require accommodations should contact the Office of Student Success as early as possible prior to the start of their first academic semester, or upon onset of disability, to initiate the intake and eligibility process.
Stevenson students seeking information, forms, and documents from the Office of Disability Services should use the SUNow Portal.
If you have a disability and require an accommodation, including academics, housing, meal plan, or an Emotional Support Animal, you will need to register with the Office of Disability Services. Registration involves the following three steps:
1. Follow this link to fill-out an intake form
2. Once you have completed this electronic intake form, you will be asked to upload documentation from your provider to the system (link to the Documentation Guidelines)
3. After submitting an intake form and disability documentation, students should contact the Director of Disability Services to schedule an intake meeting. If you are requesting housing or an Emotional Support Animal, we will give you the additional needed forms at that time.
After your intake meeting, you will receive a written response to your accommodation request from the Director of Disability Services. Upon approval for accommodations, students must initiate a request to use their approved accommodations at the beginning of each academic semester. Students must follow the policies and procedures identified for utilizing each accommodation they are approved for.
The Office of Student Success approves reasonable accommodations on an individualized, case-by-case basis, depending on the student’s needs and the recommendations contained in the disability documentation. These services may include, but are not limited to:
- Extended time on quizzes, tests, and exams
- Reduced distraction testing environment
- Note taking assistance
- The use of a computer, calculator and/or assistive technology in class and/or on exams
- Assistance registering for classes
- Preferential class seating
- Sign language interpreters
- Access to text-to-speech reader software
- Alternate format texts
- 1:1 help with organization and time management
- Referrals to other resources on and off-campus such as counseling services, rehabilitation services and tutoring through Academic Link.
Please note that once approved, some accommodations may take several weeks to arrange. Students with disabilities are encouraged to reach out to the Office of Student Success as early as possible upon deciding to attend Stevenson University.
