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. We strive to make reasonable and appropriate accommodations to allow students to enjoy the benefits of higher education. St. Thomas University welcomes students with disabilities and commits itself to work with each student to develop a program that will allow individual learning needs to be met.

We encourage students to register with SAS as soon as possible, but it is never too late. Professors may also refer students to the SAS if they think a student is eligible for our services. Contacting us for accommodation in the spring/summer before attending STU allows us enough time to prepare everything for when classes begin.
