Services for Students with Disabilities

The Center for Accessible Education

The Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs designates the Director of the Center for Accessible Education (CAE) with responsibility for oversight of the CAE on campus, which is the sole entity authorized to determine a student’s eligibility for accommodations and services by reason of disability. The Director also ensures that the CAE's policies and practices are consistent with all applicable federal and state laws and University policy.
