      Registration for Students with Disabilities

      Students with disabilities may request assistance through Disability Services, an office of the Counseling Center. Students who need help with registration should contact the office several days before registration. Those who need special services throughout the semester should inform Disability Services several weeks before the semester.

      Some of the services available include volunteer notetakers, taped notebooks, memos to faculty, special test conditions, sign language interpreting and registration assistance. An Adaptive Technology Lab and Testing Service is available for student use. To request services, students must register with the counselor/ coordinator of Disability Services. All services are elective and must be requested each semester, as needed.

      Permits for parking in spaces designated for the handicapped may be obtained from Campus Police, in Cavalry Hall. Proof of disability is required. TDD users who wish to contact the university by phone may call through Relay Texas at 800.735.2989.
