Accommodations and Access

Disability Services, the New Student Orientation team, and Admissions collaborate to ensure accessibility for attendees to these programs and events. Students needing reasonable accommodations to participate in any part of SOAR or an Open House event should contact Disability Services and SOAR or Open House Staff at least three weeks prior to the event date. DS staff are also available to meet with prospective students to discuss our registration process and services. Include requests for accommodations in your SOAR or Open House registration and list the accommodations needed.

Sign Language Interpreters, CART Services, or Alternate Text

Students needing sign language interpreters, CART services, or text in alternate format (e.g., Braille) must contact Disability Services and submit documentation at least 3 weeks prior to their SOAR or Open House date. Every effort is made to address accommodations requested late; however, we cannot guarantee accommodations for late requests.
