If you are an UMSL student and have a documented disability, Disability Access Services can help you obtain the accommodations you need in order to be successful in your courses. First, you have to become registered with our office. You can do this at any time during the semester, but we recommend doing it before classes start.

New Students

If you are a new student to Disability Access Services, please follow the step-by-step instructions below. These steps are also included on the Student Checklist.

____ 1.  Complete a Disability Access Services (DAS) Application and Registration Form.

____ 2.  Arrange for medical documentation to be provided to DAS. DAS can assist you in signing a release and faxing it to your medical professional. Once your application and documentation have been received, your file with be complete. A staff member from DAS will contact you to let you know that you are officially registered with DAS.

____ 3.  Prior to receiving your Faculty Notification letter, you must meet with a staff member in DAS to discuss program policies and your accommodations. This ensures that you understand the steps necessary to arrange for accommodations with DAS.
