The goal of the VCU Disability Support Services (DSS) Office is to assist Virginia Commonwealth University in creating a learning environment where all students have equal access to every aspect of the University's programs, services and activities.

We cooperate through partnerships with students, faculty and staff to promote students' independence and to ensure the recognition of students' abilities, not disabilities.

The Office of Disability Support Services determines appropriate academic adjustments such as program and exam modifications, classroom accommodations and auxiliary aids.

Students with disabilities are responsible for self-identification prior to requesting services and may do so at any time by presenting documentation to their campus coordinator.
