Accessibility Services

St. Thomas University is committed to creating an equitable environment by ensuring that all members of our community have access to the full range of university life. This means supporting students with disabilities in their full participation in the educational, social and cultural life of our university. Sharing responsibility with each student for their success, our accessibility program is consistent with our academic standards as we strive to make reasonable and appropriate accommodations to allow students to enjoy the benefits of higher education.

St. Thomas welcomes students with disabilities and commits itself to work with each student to develop a program which will allow individual learning needs to be met. After admission, students are encouraged to register with the Student Accessibility Services Office and to provide documentation of their disability. All disclosed information is confidential. Accommodations and services are determined on an individual basis for each student.
