Welcome to the Accessibility Resource Center at MWSU!
The primary purpose of the Accessibility Resource Center is to make sure students with disabilities have the same opportunities as their peers. Our team members work with students to determine if accommodations may be needed in order for them to fully participate in all of the academic and extracurricular activities available at MWSU. As part of the process of determining which accommodations will be effective, students are often asked to provide information regarding their disability during their first visit to our department. While Individualized Educational Plans do not follow high school students to college, they can be helpful in establishing that a student has a documented disability.
Once we determine which accommodations will be necessary, a Student Information Letter is written on behalf of the student. The purpose of the letter is to provide information to the student’s instructors regarding resources available to help them make their classes more inclusive and accessible. It is the student’s responsibility to take a copy of their Student Information Letter to each of their instructors at the beginning of each semester. Students are strongly encouraged to schedule an appointment with each of their instructors to discuss their needs.
For students who suspect that they have an undiagnosed disability, we provide a referral to Vocational Rehabilitation to determine if the student qualifies for a free evaluation as well as other services and supports. A representative from Vocational Rehabilitation visits our campus once a week to meet with students and discuss their services.
We also make referrals to various University departments such as the Center for Academic Support, Adaptive Technology and Classroom Services as part of our network of support that is available to meet the needs of students with disabilities and their instructors.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about how to get started at MWSU as a student with a disability. We are here to help and we love what we do!
