Who We Are

Our purpose is to provide access to all college programs, services, activities and facilities for students with disabilities. This includes encouraging self-advocacy for students and connecting them with resources and support services across campus to help them achieve their personal best.


TESTING CENTER SUMMER RENOVATION. The Testing Center will be undergoing an expansion this summer. Students and faculty should still contact the Testing Center to establish testing. There will be alternative testing areas established during this time. Please try to schedule as soon as possible. If you have questions, please contact the Testing Center 406-994-6984 or ODS at 406-994-2824.



New Mental Health Screening Resource

The Counseling and Psychological Services department is providing a free mental health screening resource. This self-assessment does not replace professional help, but may help you identify if you are at risk of developing a disorder. Visit the assessment here.
