Disability Services

Support Services Available for Students with Documented Disabilities

We are encouraged and excited to have a diverse student body at DeSales. Many resources are available to students both with and without disabilities.  The personal attention and relationships found at DeSales, and in the Disability Services Office,  are one of the many benefits of attending our University.  Like most post-secondary schools, we expect that students who plan to attend will have already acquired learning strategies that aide in their academic success, are willing to be self-advocates with faculty and staff, and support a self-determination model.  

Student self-determination, as well as University support services, such as varied accommodations and academic coaching services, provide a collaborative environment in which students can achieve their goals. Students with disabilities, like their non-disabled counter-parts, must meet all academic and nonacademic criteria for admission, continued enrollment, and graduation from DeSales University.
