Students with Disabilities

Beginning an undergraduate or graduate career is an exciting and challenging experience. If you are a student with a disability, some common issues that may arise include the following:

  • Navigating the accommodations process
  • Arranging support services
  • Adjusting to differences in documentation requirements
  • Managing medical, physical, and psychological needs in a college setting
  • Navigating campus life and campus involvement due to the effects of your  emotional, medical or physical condition
  • Finding housing and transportation that fits personal needs
  • Knowing your rights as an individual requesting accessibility services
  • Feeling singled out
  • Having an "invisible" disability and feeling like your struggles are not seen or understood by others
  • Increased interpersonal challenges
  • Difficulty with academic skills such as note taking and studying

Assistance is available to students with disabilities through the Student Accessibility Services to enable equal access to Pace University's educational programs and facilities. The Counseling Center is also available to students who would like additional emotional support and the opportunity to process their emotions and experiences related to accessibility and/or their psychological or medical condition.
