Disability Services

Services for students with disabilities

Disability Services is a part of the Academic Skills Center. Any student who has a disability should contact the Disability Services Coordinator at (507) 457-1465. The coordinator will then evaluate documentation, determine appropriate accommodations and act as a resource/advocate to assist students in meeting their academic goals and to ensure equality of opportunity.

Students are responsible for furnishing current documentation of their disability to the coordinator. These diagnostic reports should be within three years of the request for service and should be completed by a physician or other licensed practitioner.

It is the responsibility of the student to seek available assistance and to request reasonable accommodations through the coordinator. The coordinator, together with the student, determines accommodations with recommendations from qualified professionals and in consultation with faculty members.

Students who lack documentation but suspect they may qualify for accommodations are also encouraged to contact the Disability Services Coordinator.
