Support for students with disabilities
SDS supports students by facilitating the provisions of reasonable accommodations as determined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. SDS will seek to go beyond compliance through education, advocacy, and strong partnerships with NEIU faculty and staff.
Steps to start the request for accommodations
To apply for services, students must self-identify a disability by submitting documentation based upon diagnosed need from appropriate professionals.
Please use the menu on the left and go to "How to Get Services" to navigate through our pages and learn more about our services.
Once you complete and submit your request for accommodations and your supporting documentation, an SDS specialist will get in touch with you by email within 10 buisness days to schedule an appointment to discuss your request for accommodations.
For further information, please call (773) 442-4595, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit us in our office:
