Welcome to JSU

Jacksonville State University has a long history of serving Post-Traditional students within the surrounding communities.  It is our goal to provide better access to academic success at JSU by providing resources and referrals to needed services and programs, both on and off campus, for all enrolled Adult Learners, Commuters, Students with Children, and Transfer Students.


In order to ease your transition to JSU, we have resources for your convenience:

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 accommodations 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. Disability Resources (DR) seeks to ensure equal learning and opportunities for students, faculty, staff, and guests with disabilities. 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. In order to receive academic, housing, or meal plan accommodations, you must first submit a request for accommodations and meet with one of our Disability Specialists to discuss your need. Completing a request does not guarantee you are eligible to receive accommodations

  • Step 1: Submit Request - Students may submit the online request for services form. If an alternative format for the form is needed or a student needs assistance in completing the form, please contact our office directly via email at or phone at 256-782-8380. If you have documentation ready, you will have the opportunity to upload the documentation on this form. Otherwise, it will be requested as part of Step 2 below.
  • Step 2: Submit Documentation - Once the intake form is received by Disability Resources, a staff member will be assigned to you and will reach out to you for the next steps of your request. As part of these next steps, you will need to provide documentation of disability or related condition from a qualified healthcare provider, if you have not already done so. It is helpful if documentation includes recommendation of appropriate reasonable accommodations for the post-secondary setting. You can also provide any other relevant information such as psychological testing reports, copies of IEP’s, 504 plans, or other information pertaining to any previous accommodations received in highschool or at other colleges/universities. If you are unsure what documentation is needed, please contact Disability Resources via email at or phone at 256-782-8380.
  • Step 3: Meet with Disability Specialist - Once the intake form is complete and documentation of disability is received, your specialist will develop an Individualized Post-Secondary Plan (IPP) with you through an interactive process. The IPP serves as the request for accommodations. It is up to you, the individual student, whether to present your IPP letter (sent electronically at your request) to your instructors and when you choose to do so. It is strongly suggested that you present your letters and discuss your accommodation needs early in the semester. An instructor is not obligated to retroactively provide accommodations. If you feel uncomfortable speaking with an instructor, a DR staff member can assist you. Remember that instructors may have a number of accommodations requests each semester and that you may have to speak with them out of class, during office hours, schedule an appointment, or communicate with them by email to request an online meeting. Students should have a face-to-face conversation with their faculty member either in-person or online to discuss the accommodations. Many students wish to follow up this meeting with an email to make sure your reasonable accommodations are worked out. If there is a problem with your request for accommodations in any course or you have questions about your accommodations, please contact DR as soon as possible.

Self-advocacy is key to becoming self-determined. We want students to be able to choose and set their own goals, make important decisions, and accept responsibility for those decisions. At the beginning of each semester, students will review their course requirements and notify Disability Resources of the courses which they want their accommodation letters sent. Our students then schedule time with their instructors to review the accommodations they are eligible to receive and discuss how those accommodations would be provided.
