Student Disability Services

The Miller Center for Student Disability Services (SDS) provides services and reasonable accommodations to ensure equal access to education at Miami University. SDS serves a diverse group of students, including those with physical, vision, hearing, psychiatric, medical, neurological, autism spectrum, ADHD, learning disabilities, and cognitive disabilities.

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.

Health and Wellness

Miami University is committed to the health and wellness of its students, faculty, and staff. A number of offices exist on campus to holistically support your wellbeing.

Student Counseling Service

The Office of Student Counseling Services (SCS) offers a variety of resources and services that seek to achieve and/or maintain a mentally healthy status for all Miami students, including a learning environment that facilitates and supports that status. Services available to online students include clinical consultation, guidance and referral to mental health treatment providers in the private sector. 


The H.O.P.E. Line is available 24/7 to call for immediate support, crisis intervention, and stabilization from a licensed mental health counselor. Campus Care is an option for students who want to consult with a trained mental health professional in a less formal and more convenient setting than a counseling appointment. SCS also offers weekly 30-minute workshops on various topics. 


Online mental health resources provide a launching point for more in-depth exploration. Each topic area provides basic information, ways students can help themselves to deal with milder presentations of the concerns, and indications about when professional assistance might be suggested.


Resources for Health & Wellness

Full-time Miami University students can enroll in health insurance from Aetna. If you don't wish to use Miami's student health insurance, be sure to request a waiver to avoid being billed. If you're in the area, you can also utilize outpatient care and other in-person services at the Student Health Service. Staff includes full-time physicians, certified nurse practitioners and a dedicated nursing staff.


The Office of Student Wellness provides educational resources and services that promote the health and wellness of Miami students. All admitted students have to complete three required trainings through their office, in the areas of alcohol and its effects; sexual assault prevention; and diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). You can also find related resources on their website.


Miami's Office of Community Standards houses policies and procedures, Title IX information, and various resources and forms. The office strives to resolve cases in a fair, equitable and educational manner. If you need to report an incident, follow these links:
