Student Information

The DSS office at UAH provides academic accommodations for students with disabilities. To register for services please follow our registration procedures. Accommodations provide students an equal opportunity to succeed at UAH. Accommodations also provide equal access to facilities and academic information.

The DSS office follows the standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA, 2008) and the Association for Higher Education and Disabilities (AHEAD) and fully supports providing access to all students with documented disabilities. However, academic success is solely the responsibility of the student.
