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.  
 
SUMMER HOURS: Starting May 19 and through the summer, the Walter Young Center is open Monday - Thursday 8 am - 4:30 pm and Friday 8 am to noon.

  • Students who have previously been granted a housing accommodation do not need to resubmit documentation to Disability Services to receive the accommodation for the next semester or year. For service or assistance animals, refer to information in the section about Service animals.
  • When filling out the online housing application, click "yes" to the question asking whether the student will request housing accommodations.
  • Follow up with Housing concerning your accommodation, and about housing questions in general.
  • Deadlines for housing are still the same for students with disabilities as for other students.
  • Your placement in the residence hall can be anywhere on campus that satisfies the requested accommodation. Disability Services only verifies the disability; we do not make placements or answer roommate questions. Direct those inquiries to Housing.
  • If you have any questions regarding your disability please do not hesitate to contact Disability Services at 262-524-7335, or wyc@carrollu.edu.

 

Students who need accessible classroom locations because of a permanent mobility disability should contact the Office of Services for Students with Disabilities as soon as their schedule is finalized.
