Student Guide to Accessibility Services

Wesleyan University is committed to supporting students in their academic and co-curricular endeavors. The University offers all students a broad range of programs providing academic support and enrichment. These programs are an integral part of the Wesleyan community, built around a culture of intellectual growth and personal development. Students with documented disabilities are able to request reasonable accommodations through Accessibility Services to ensure access at Wesleyan.

Students can establish a disabilities file at any time, though we strongly encourage students to do so in their first semester. Even if you think you may not want to request accommodations for your disability, you are encouraged to make an appointment to discuss your options and resources. Whether you are a new student at Wesleyan University or a current student just now considering requesting accommodations, we would be happy to talk with you about the services we offer.

In addition, the office works to provide supports beyond accommodations. These supports, which include a focus on the development of metacognitive learning strategies and time management and organizational skills, are available to all Wesleyan students. Please contact our office to set up a time to discuss your request for support services. Accessibility Services is ready to help you have the best possible experience at Wesleyan University, but it is incumbent upon the student to initiate the process.
