Disability Support Services
The University's Office of Disability Support Services provides and coordinates support services for students with a wide variety of disabilities, as well as those temporarily disabled by injury or illness. Accommodations are available through DSS to facilitate academic access for students with disabilities. Services provided without charge to the student may include orientation to campus, registration assistance, readers, interpreters, scribes, learning disabilities advising, adaptive materials and equipment, assistance with note taking, laboratory assistance, test accommodations, regular advising, and referrals. DSS does not provide content tutoring, although it is available on a fee basis from other campus resources. The University does not pay for personal attendant care.
Law students who wish to receive exam accommodations on the basis of a disability must provide notice and proper documentation to the University Office of Disability Support Services, Marvin Center Suite 242, 202.994.8250. Please note that arrangements should be made well in advance of the examination period. Students are responsible for adhering strictly to the terms of the agreement reached with the Disability Support Services Office.
