These pages will assist you in registering with and utilizing the services of the Office of Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD). If you are taking classes on the Chicago campus and need to register with SSD, please utilize the information specific to Chicago-campus students.

In order to be considered an active student registered with SSD, you must complete all four of the following steps:

  1. Review our disability documentation guidelines and submit appropriate documentation of disability to the SSD Office
  2. Complete SSD's online application
  3. Meet for an intake appointment with a member of SSD's professional staff
    -Note: no intake appointments will be scheduled the last two weeks of the quarter (i.e., reading week and finals week)
  4. Sign an accommodation agreement that details the accommodations that will be provided to you

Until you have completed all of these steps, you will not be registered with SSD, considered a student with a disability by the University, or entitled to accommodations or services.
