Disabilities

Cornell University has been providing reasonable academic and program accommodation to students with disabilities since the implementation of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The university is committed to ensuring that all qualified persons with disabilities have the opportunity to participate in its education and employment programs and services on an equitable basis.

Students must register with Student Disability Services (SDS) to be eligible for disability services and accommodations. Documentation guidelines for each category of disability and more information about SDS can be found on the web site at: http://sds.cornell.edu/. Advance notice is needed to have some accommodations and services in place at the beginning of the semester. If you would like to meet with an SDS counselor, call 607.254.4545 to schedule an appointment. Call 607.255.6376 to make an appointment to speak to a SHA advisor regarding SDS.
