Office of Disability Services Mission
Disability Services recognizes each student as the unique individual that they are and provides opportunities for self-advocacy, academic and personal growth. Disability Services is committed to supporting students and collaborating with the campus community to remove barriers to access, while embracing the College’s commitment to equity and inclusion for all.
The Office of Disability Services at St. Thomas Aquinas College achieves our mission by:
- Providing reasonable accommodations and services that are tailored to meet the needs of individuals based on their specific, appropriately documented disability, while preserving St. Thomas Aquinas College’s academic integrity and high standards of academic performance.
- Fostering a sense of independence through the training of students with disabilities to effectively advocate for themselves within the College community.
- Serving as a liaison and resource for the College’s faculty, staff and administrators to cultivate a greater awareness and appreciation of issues of concern to people with disabilities.
In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, St. Thomas Aquinas College provides reasonable accommodations that ensure equal access to the College’s programs, services, and activities to students who disclose a disability and register for reasonable accommodations through Disability Services.
Students who choose to disclose a disability and request reasonable accommodations should complete the Request for Student Disability Accommodations form and provide supporting documentation. Please read about the Documentation requirements here.
