Student Accessibility Services at Clark University

Clark University is committed to providing equal access to otherwise qualified students with disabilities who are able to effectively function in a rigorous, campus-based, liberal-arts environment.

Although Clark does not offer a specialized program, or a learning center for students with disabilities, the University does provide a support service for qualified students who register with Student Accessibility Services (SAS). The staff of Student Accessibility Services works with students to coordinate academic and residential accommodations as well as services on campus. SAS reviews accommodations requests for undergraduates and graduate students.

Student Accessibility Services is located in the Goddard Library, Room 430. This office is the point of contact for any student seeking accommodations.

We encourage students and parents interested in learning about our support services to read the following information on this page and other pages located via links in the right hand module.
