Let us serve you
The Disability Services staff serves as a liaison between students and faculty, staff, and community agencies to facilitate and advocate for our students. Let us assist you in the transition to university life as you develop independence and self-advocacy, and create your network of resources.
We believe that all students who attend UHV should have the same opportunities to be successful in higher education. In order to minimize the impact of the disability in the academic setting, we arrange for reasonable accommodations, auxiliary aids, and support services based on the specific needs of each student.
We're committed to upholding the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the ADA Amendments Act of 2008, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. These laws ensure that students with disabilities receive the quality services they need to thrive academically and personally.
At UHV, we understand the importance of providing a supportive environment for all our students. We want to connect you with the resources and assistance necessary to make your time at UHV successful and enjoyable. So feel free to explore our web pages and reach out to us if you have any questions or need any further information. We're here to help!
