An individual is considered to have a disability if he or she has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits major life activity, has a record of such an impairment, or is regarded as having such an impairment. If you have a disability and need accommodations, please register with Services for Students with Disabilities
Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 as amended in 2008.
Do you think you have a disability? It’s never too late to receive accommodations! Think back to elementary school, middle, and high school. Did you struggle with math, reading, or focusing? Fifty percent of students registered with SSD began receiving services as upper-class or graduate students after they recognized that their academic performance did not reflect their aptitude and effort. If you think this describes you, call SSD at 540-231-3788 and schedule a confidential consultation with an SSD staff coordinator. We can help you identify the next steps you need to take, either through SSD, another university department, or an outside service provider.
