The mission of the office of services for students with disabilities at Carroll University is to assist in creating a campus community where students with disabilities have an equal opportunity to participate in all aspects of the educational environment.
Disability Services provides assistance to students who have supplied appropriate documentation evidencing disabilities that range from mild to severe in nature.
Disabilities include, but are not limited to:
·           Learning disabilities ·           Blindness
·           Attention deficit disorder ·           Deaf or hard of hearing
·           Traumatic brain injury ·           Emotional and mental challenges

Carroll University is committed to making otherwise qualified students with disabilities full participants in its programs, courses, services and activities. We are guided by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments (ADAA) of 2008. Individuals will receive reasonable accommodations according to their needs and the documentation of their disability.
 
If you have questions about disabilities or disability services, contact us at wyc@carrollu.edu, or call 262-524-7335.
