About

Welcome!

Student Disability Services (SDS) coordinates accommodations, auxiliary aids, support services and resources for over 1500 students on Miami's Oxford and Regional campuses. SDS supports Miami’s commitment to diversity & inclusion and promotes student access to an equitable college experience. Services are coordinated in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act as Amended and Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act.

We serve a diverse group of students including those with physical, vision, hearing, psychiatric, medical, neurological, autism spectrum, ADHD, learning disabilities and cognitive disabilities. We also coordinate temporary accommodations for students that experience significant injury or illness.

To receive services, students should:

  • Self-disclose disability and apply for services.

  • Provide verifying documentation.

  • Meet with SDS staff to determine accommodation plans.

  • Submit accommodation requests according to university procedure and self-advocate regarding needs.

In addition to providing student support services, SDS supports faculty in providing student accommodations. Faculty have access to an online portal to manage student accommodations. We also provide faculty training and education opportunities related to accessibility and teaching students with disabilities.

SDS embraces the social model of disability and each member of our team is passionate about advancing equity, accessibility and inclusion. We look forward to working with you as a partner in these efforts.
