What We Do

The Student Access Office is a vital campus resource.

The Student Access Office (formerly the Office of Disability Support Services) achieves our mission by:

  • Providing cost-free assistance and services that are tailored to meet the needs of individuals based on their specific, appropriately documented needs, while preserving Adelphi’s academic integrity and high standards of academic expectations and performance

  • Encouraging independence through the training of students with disabilities to effectively advocate for themselves within the University community

  • Serving as a liaison and resource for the University faculty, staff and administrators to foster a greater awareness and appreciation of issues of concern to people with different needs

You should register with the office upon acceptance to Adelphi. Submit the Petition for Accommodations and the Consent for Release of Information forms, along with the required information as detailed in the Guidelines of Documentation.
