Disability Services Program
Academic Accommodations for Students with Disabilities
Graduate students who need accommodations for a disability in order to fully participate in University classes and programs should call the Disability Services Program (DSP). This contact should be made as far in advance as possible. DSP will work collaboratively with students, graduate department faculty and other University personnel to facilitate appropriate, individualized accommodations. Documentation of disability is required.
Examples of documentation may include, but are not limited to, medical reports, psycho-educational reports (for students with learning disabilities) and/or verification of psychological disabilities. Documentation is used to assist with the determination of appropriate accommodations and is kept confidential.
The Handbook for Students with Disabilities (policies and procedures) is available on the Disability Services Program website. Select “publications” or call the office 303-871-2278. The website also has links to DSP and other information including documentation guidelines. DSP is located on the 4th floor of Ruffatto Hall (Morgridge College of Education; corner of Evans and High streets).
