    Disability Support Services

    At Dean College, we strongly believe in providing the best educational services to each of our students. Along these lines, we offer learning and academic support as well as auxiliary aids and services to qualified students with disabilities through the Office of Disability Support Services (DSS). 

    The College provides its full support and a variety of accommodations to any qualified student with any of the following: 

    • Documented disability
    • Executive functioning disorder
    • Sensory processing 
    • Nonverbal learning issues

    Registration Information

    Disability accommodations are arranged only through DSS. Registration with DSS is on a voluntary, self-identifying basis. Students must provide documentation of the disability from an appropriate licensed professional. Once the required documentation has been provided, the student will meet with the DSS Coordinator to discuss reasonable accommodations. 

    For further information, please contact:

    DSS also refers students to other offices and resources on campus, including the Morton Family Learning Center, Residence Life, Counseling, Health Services, Robbins Family Center for Advising and Career Planning, Academic Affairs, and Student Activities. DSS also works closely with faculty and administrators to implement reasonable accommodations, and assist students in participating in college activities.
