Disability Services (DS) is a department within the Office of Student Affairs of Bellevue University. Disability Services coordinates services, provides advocacy and support to students with documented physical, learning, and psychological disabilities. We also provide assistance to the general campus community in responding appropriately to requests for accommodations based on disability.
Disability Services (DS) works with all aspects of the University and the community to provide opportunities for students with disabilities and enables them to fully participate in and enjoy the benefits of higher education. We recognize that disability reflects diverse characteristics and experiences, and is an aspect of diversity integral to society. Disability Services achieves this by honoring the uniqueness of each student and through the provision of resources and services that promote academic success and self-advocacy skills. In addition, we collaborate with instructors, staff, and community members to create usable, equitable, inclusive and sustainable learning environments.
Disability Services offers many services to its students with disabilities. Eligibility for these services is determined individually based on documented need. Early planning is essential for many of the resources and accommodations provided so we ask that you contact us at the earliest possible date in order for us to assist with your needs. Services may include:
Auxiliary Aids and Services
Readers and/or Scribes
Sign Language/oral interpreters
