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.
