Eligibility for Service
Students who seek support services from the Office of Disability Services must be registered Kean University students with a current schedule . They are required to self-disclose their disability and submit current documentation to verify eligibility as defined under applicable law. To meet this requirement, documentation must be dated within the last five years, and address the present need for accommodations. This documentation will be reviewed on a case by case basis in conjunction with a personal intake interview. Academic accommodations are designed to provide equal access to course content while maintaining the academic standards that are required in all classes. The College may deny an accommodation, academic adjustment or request for assistive technology if determined to be unreasonable, or if the modification fundamentally alters an academic program.
HOW TO APPLY
When applying for services, students should call the Office of Disability Services at 908-737-4910, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit Downs Hall, room 122 to make an appointment for an intake interview. The office is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
