STUDENT ACCESSIBILITY SUPPORT CENTER

 
General Information
Description of ServiceServes as a resource for students and values self-empowerment, self-direction, and self-determination. Our mission is to advocate for a campus environment that meets the needs of students with disabilities. The Student Accessibility Support Center is the designated support service center to help students enable students with disabilities to develop their academic potential, by making their academic experience accessible. In addition to arranging accommodations, a major part of the mission of SASC is to encourage students with disabilities to achieve a high level of autonomy at Stony Brook and far beyond. We provide services and accommodations that advocate for the needs of students. We improve academic and environmental accessibility to foster individual growth, student empowerment, and support a community of care. Services are provided to all eligible Stony Brook students covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendment Act (ADAA). Documentation will be requested to verify a disability and to determine appropriate accommodations. Services can only be initiated when students self-disclose their disabilities and request some type of assistance. All information and documentation related to a disability is confidential, not part of the academic transcript and is not released without the student's written consent. The staff is here to support your interactions with faculty, staff and community agencies. Call for more detailed information.
