Disability Services for Students (DSS) ensures that TWU students with disabilities have equitable access to TWU classes, programs, and events.  We enhance student learning by promoting self-advocacy and partnering with faculty and staff to create a more accessible environment.  We seek to advance representation of TWU students with disabilities and establish disability culture as an essential aspect of diversity, vital to society and the TWU community.

The Accommodation Process

Students must self-identify by completing Disability Services for Students registration forms and providing documentation of disability.  Students are encouraged to contact the DSS office as soon as possible to apply for services. Upon receipt of documentation, DSS will contact the student to schedule a meeting to assess the student’s needs and determine eligibility.  

After completing the registration process, DSS registered students will be provided with an Academic Adjustment letter that will be shared with their professors by email. The Academic Adjustment Letter will outline any accommodations that students need to access their courses.

Housing Accommodations

In order to receive housing accommodations, students must:

  1.  Follow the housing application process, including payment of required fees.
  2.  Complete the DSS registration process and submit housing specific accommodation requests.

Accessible Parking

All TWU students who park on campus are required to purchase a TWU parking permit. To get an accessible parking permit, please submit your VTR-214 form to the DPS Parking Office in the Oakland Complex. This is the same form submitted to the county to receive an accessible parking placard or license plate.
