Disability Resources

The Office of Disability Resources

The Office of Disability Resources is committed to providing services that facilitate the academic and personal goals of the students we serve. Students with documented disabilities are entitled to reasonable and appropriate academic accommodation in accordance with federal laws including Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act and the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act. We are committed to equal opportunity for persons with disabilities without regard to disability. 

Our Mission

The mission of Disability Resources (DR) is to ensure equal learning and opportunities for students, faculty, staff, and guests with disabilities by increasing the capacity of Jacksonville State University to eliminate physical, programmatic, policy, informational, and attitudinal barriers. We work to ensure access under federal and state statutes to university courses, programs, facilities, services, and activities by providing or arranging reasonable accommodations, academic adjustments, auxiliary aids and services, training, consultation, and technical assistance.
