Accessibility Services Center

Our Mission

The Accessibility Services Center aims to cultivate an accessible and inclusive community where students with permanent and temporary disabilities have an equal opportunity to participate in all aspects of campus life. We facilitate student advocacy, learning, and access through partnerships with students, faculty, and staff.

The Accessibility Services Center offers accessibility related services to students who have a documented medical condition or disability in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the ADA Amendment Act of 2008. Each accommodation request initiates the interactive process that provides a 1:1 approach with the student and center staff to find what accommodations and services best meet a student's needs.

Students are responsible for initiating the accommodation request process.

  1. Register with the center by completing and submitting the Self-Identification Form
  2. Submit documentation related to the diagnosis via fax (402.559.9671) or email: UNMCASC@unmc.edu
  3. Schedule an intake meeting with a staff member to determine reasonable accommodations.
  4. Once approved, meet with necessary faculty to discuss accommodation plan.
  5. Each semester upon approval, check in with the ASC regarding accommodation concerns and implementation.
