Student Disability Services
Due to COVID-19 we will no longer be accepting new requests for tutoring/mentoring for the spring 2020 semester. If you have already requested this service and have not been paired with a one-on-one tutor/mentor, Paige Barnes (firstname.lastname@example.org), our program coordinator, will be contacting you with some FREE alternative options for you to consider using for assistance during this time. We apologize for the inconvenience.
The Office of Student Disability Services is committed to promoting the full participation of students with disabilities in all areas of university life. The Office of Student Disability Services works with Murray State faculty and staff to provide equal access to University resources, academics, programs and activities for students with disabilities.
What We Do
The Office of Student Disability Services provides accommodations and services to students with documented disabilities. These disabilities can include, but are not limited to: cognitive disabilities (i.e learning disabilities, attention deficit disorders, and traumatic brain injury), mental/emotional disorders, seizure disorders, autism, sensory disorders, mobility impairments, and other physical or health impairments. Through an interactive process between the student and SDS staff, student's eligibility for accommodations with be determined following a review of their reasonable documentation. SDS staff will work to ensure appropriate accommodations are in place in order for the student to have equal access to the University's resources and academic programs. Additionally, we serve to educate the University community about the kinds of practices and processes that will allow students, parents, and community members to feel welcomed and included with the campus of Murray State University.
