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.


Returning To School After A Leave of Absence

The Office of Disability Services would encourage those students who are returning to school after a leave of absence to schedule an appointment with an Accessiblity Specialist to familiarize yourself with any new policies or procedures that may have come into effect during your absence. Please call 406-994-2824 and schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
