Disability Services

Central State University is commited to including students with disabilities as full participants in its programs, services, and activities through compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. A student with a disability cannot be denied admission exclusively because of a disability. The mission of Disability Services is to ensure that qualified students with disabilities have equal access to educational opportunities at Central sate University so they can participate in all aspects of university life.

In order to receive services, students must first be admitted to Central State University and then present documentation of their disability to the Coordinator of Disability Services. If a student has been diagnosed with a disabilty and received disability services while in high school, the student should be re-evaluated during their senior year because documentation must be current when transitioning to the college environment. Documentation must be completed by a physician, a psychiatrist, a licensed psychologist, or a rehabilitation specialist. Additionally, the documentation should describe functional limitations, and should include recommendations for academic adjustments appropriate to the disability.

Students with disabilities are expected to meet with the Coordinator of Disability Services and/or a Counselor from the Counseling Center Staff each semester as a part ot their transition plan to determine the academic adjustments for the classes in which they are enrolled.

To support student academic progress, students may be referred to:

  • Student Support Services
  • Tutorial support for classes
  • Assigned to study groups
  • Career Planning Workshops
  • Counseling Services workshops
