Access. Empowerment. Inclusion.


Congratulations new Highlanders!

For summer orientation (Quest) information visit the New Student Programs website, information including Freshman Orientation and Transfer Orientation pages!

The Center for Accessibility Services (CAS) will have a break out session during each Quest. Students and family are encouraged to attend. This is a time to learn about the accommodation process, pick up a CAS registration packet and ask questions of a disability services specialist on staff.

Steps to Register with the Center for Accessibility Services

Upon receipt of the above information, a disability services specialist will contact the student to schedule a meeting (telephone or in-person) to discuss accommodations.

Center for Accessibility Services’ registration forms and/or medical documentation can be provided to the office by email, fax or in person at the CAS office.

If accommodations were assigned in high school, it is highly suggested that students register with the CAS and use accommodations from the first semester in college.
