Access. Empowerment. Inclusion.
The Center for Accessibility Services (CAS) is committed to the ongoing goal of access and inclusion so that all individuals on campus can fully participate in the university experience. CAS serves and supports students, family members and visitors seeking reasonable accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The Center for Accessibility Services (CAS) is the department on campus that approves official disability related accommodations that have been determined as reasonable through a completed interactive process with a student and the CAS offices.
It is the student’s responsibility to inform the Center for Accessibility Services (CAS) that they are seeking an accommodation based on disability. A student notifying other departments or persons on campus about a disability does not inform the Center for Accessibility Services.
A reasonable accommodation is one that would allow an individual with a disability to compete at the same level as their peers without changing the fundamental nature of the program or activity.
