Accessibility Services

Access your education

Reduce disability-related barriers to your learning with the provision of reasonable accommodations.

Equal Opportunity

The University of Saint Joseph is committed to providing equal educational opportunity and full participation for individuals with disabilities. The University recognizes its obligations to honor the letter and spirit of disability rights laws, including the Americans with Disabilities Act and amendments, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and the Fair Housing Act. Should a student encounter a disability-related barrier at the University (physical, attitudinal, educational, programmatic) for which support or accommodations are needed, the student is encouraged to initiate services with Student Accessibility Services.

Student Accessibility Services facilitates the reduction or elimination of disability-related barriers encountered by students with documented permanent and temporary disabilities such as ADHD, ASD, learning disabilities, mental health disabilities, chronic health disabilities, physical disabilities, deafness and hearing impairments, blindness and visual impairments, and speech and language impairments.

Guide for Registering with Accessibility Services

Initiate Services

The first step to initiating services is to submit documentation of disability to the Accessibility Coordinator. Documentation may be faxed, mailed, emailed, or dropped off at Student Accessibility Services.

After documentation has been received and reviewed, the student will receive an email on their USJ email account. If the documentation is sufficient, the Accessibility Coordinator will schedule an intake appointment with the student via email.

The intake appointment consists of completing paperwork and discussing accommodations, including the process for requesting and implementing accommodations each semester.

Please note that academic accommodations must be requested each semester, as they do not rollover. The Accessibility Coordinator will discuss this process with the student during the intake appointment.
