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.


 


The Office of Disability Services is offering Non-Resident Freshman Access Scholarships. Applications are due by August 1, 2019.

Interested in our Transition Program? Application Priority Deadline is July 19th, 2019. 

 

Are you an incoming Freshman? 

The Sophomore Surge is a program at MSU where incoming students will be guided and supported throughout their first year of college. The Sophomore Surge will connect first-year students with a Peer Mentor and with faculty and advising professionals at MSU who are committed to student success. Students participate in the Surge through enrollment in CLS 101US, US 101US or BGEN 104US. Learn more about Sophomore Surge.

 

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.
