Students with Disabilities

Students who would like to request an accommodation such as extra time when taking tests or a room closer to the elevator should contact Student Disability Services at disabilities@uchicago.edu as soon as possible after you have confirmed you are attending. Appropriate and professional documentation verifying the disability and specifying recommended accommodation(s) must be provided to support the request. Assuming the documentation is current and complete, the review and decision process may take several weeks, so do not wait until your course begins to request accommodations. It is the policy of the University of Chicago to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act as amended, but please bear in mind that whatever accommodations you may have at your current school does not automatically transfer to UChicago.

Please review the College Student Manual for additional information regarding:
