Disability Accommodations

Students who have a disability protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act who want to request accommodations must make an appointment with the Disability Services Program (DSP) 303.871.2372, located on the 4th floor of Ruffatto Hall (1999 E. Evans Ave). The Handbook for Students with Disabilities is available online at The Handbook provides guidance on DU policy and procedures concerning students with disabilities.

It is the responsibility of the student to contact the Disability Services Program (DSP) to initiate the request for accommodations, make his/her needs known, and provide appropriate expert documentation regarding the disability before accommodations can be granted. Please note that accommodations cannot be granted retroactively. Accommodations are approved and must be used in the term during which they are requested and for future terms.

TThe GSSW Student Experience Coordinator is the liaison with DSP. Any questions or concerns about this process can be directed to Steven Chavez-Gordy, 303-871-6146.
