Student Accessibility Services Office (SAS)

Worcester State and the Student Accessibility Services Office (SAS) are committed to providing services that will enable students who qualify under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to participate fully in the activities of Worcester State. SAS is the primary support system on campus for students living with disabilities. Services have been established to ensure that facilities, activities, and programs at Worcester State are accessible to all students.

Current and comprehensive documentation is required from all students who request services, and it must demonstrate that the student’s disability substantially limits one or more major life activities. For specific documentation criteria, please visit the SAS website at www.worcester.edu/sas. Accommodations and services are individually determined based on the functional limitation(s) that are identified by the diagnostic evaluation and during the intake interview.

An intake appointment is necessary to officially register with SAS to review documentation and subsequently receive reasonable accommodations. Once registered with SAS, it is the responsibility of the student to request accommodations on a semester-to-semester basis. A learning specialist, who provides time management, organizational, self-advocacy and academic strategies, is available to students registered with SAS.

Please contact SAS for more information. The office is located on the first floor of the Administration Building, Room 131. Telephone: 508-929-8733, fax: 508-929-8214, email: sas@worcester.edu, or web:  www.worcester.edu/sas.
