Services & Accommodations

Disability Services can provide assistance to disabled students in many different ways.  Our staff has been trained to provide the most suitable accommodations for any given disability.

Listed below are a few examples of how our program may assist you as a student with a disability, all accommodations are based on eligibility. Consult your advisor to best identify your specific needs.

Adaptive Technology

Disability Services uses the latest in adaptive technology and assistive devices. We have a wide range of computer systems adapted to the specialized needs of people with visual impairments and other disabilities. For example, for hearing impaired students, real-time captioning can be used right in the classroom. 

Curriculum Adaptation

Options for adapting curriculum for students include raised line drawings for graphs and figures, altering the location of lab equipment or classrooms, and--in some instances--assistance with operating specialized equipment.

Reading

Reading services are available for students who have reading impairments. These services include access to the Kurzweil 3000 system as well as recorded textbooks, course handouts, and readers to help with tests (see below). When necessary, assistance is available upon request for library research.

Accommodated/Adapted Testing

Some disabilities may require necessary testing accommodations. These accommodations may include, but are not limited, time modifications, a reduced distraction room, and exams in alternate formats.

Deaf Services

Deaf and hard-of-hearing students can take advantage of interpreting and captioning services in the classroom and in-curriculum related situations. We provide American Sign Language interpreters as well as transcription services on request. 

Tutoring

Disability Services provides tutoring referals as needed. Weber State has a range of tutoring services which are available to all students, free of charge. For further information, contact Tutoring Services to find out what is available for you.

Mobility Accommodations

Disability Services can provide guidance regarding accessible routes and, in case of construction, available alternatives. When necessary, the Disabilities Services may arrange to relocate courses to more accessible locations. Most classrooms are fully accessible; however additional accessible seating can be arranged upon request.

The WSU shuttle is fully accessible and available, free of charge, to all students. Please note that the shuttle route is very limited.

Parking questions should be addressed to WSU Parking Services (801.626.6533).

Registration Assistance

Students with disabilities can request priority registration and/or registration assistance based upon need.

Cooperative Education Placement

Disability Services can help students with disabilities identify cooperative education opportunities. These placements are closely coordinated with appropriate academic departments on campus enabling students to receive college credit for work performed. Our office also works with various external agencies to locate potential work experience and opportunities for our students.

Compliance Training

We offer Compliance Training to any department and group on campus.
Training can be customized fit the needs and size of the audience.
