FOREWORD


MSU-Bozeman has a proud history of accommodating persons with disabilities, and the staff at Disabled Student Services (DSS) is committed to providing you with the direction, advice and services needed to allow you the opportunity to participate fully in the rich and varied life at Montana State University. With your needs in mind, DSS staff have designed the online DSS Student Guidebook. The guidebook is a collection of policies and procedures, helpful information, suggestions, and tips for new and prospective MSU students. We hope it will help get you on your way toward a successful and enriching academic experience.

It is important to understand that we all need to work together to ensure that the services offered at MSU meets your needs. We in DSS have a clear responsibility to provide appropriate accommodations for persons with disabilities; however, we can't respond effectively to challenges and problems unless we become aware of them in a timely fashion. It is important, therefore, that you keep us informed of both the successes and the difficulties you experience. We work hard to make our services and policies "user friendly," and we are always open to your ideas and suggestions for improvement, so give us some constructive feedback from time to time.


Welcome to MSU-Bozeman!


MISSION OF DSS
Disabled Student Services (DSS) is committed to facilitating Montana State University's goal of making its programs, services, and activities accessible to students with disabilities. Toward this end, DSS strives to enhance awareness of & sensitivity to the needs of persons with disabilities at MSU and to ensure full access to educational opportunity for persons with disabilities as required under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans With Disabilities Act.


OFFICE AND STAFF
Disabled Student Services (DSS), which is part of the office of Disability, Re-entry and Veteran Services, is located in room #180 of the Strand Union Building on the Montana State University campus. In addition to staff offices, the Disability, Re-entry and Veteran Services office complex houses two rooms that may be reserved by students for accommodated testing, studying and tutoring sessions. Since the Strand Union Building houses the Student Union, it is a crossroads of student activity, and a trip to the DSS office is, therefore, very convenient for most students.

The DSS office is, of course, fully accessible. An automatic door and an elevator at the west entrance provide the most convenient Strand Union Building access for wheelchair users, and an accessible door and lift on the east side of the building also provide access to the basement floor on which the office is located.
