DePaul's Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) coordinates DePaul University's provision of accommodations and other services to students with documented disabilities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.
CSD regularly works with students diagnosed with a range of disabilities such as learning disabilities, AD/HD, autism spectrum, medical conditions, chronic illness, mental health disorders, and physical and sensory impairments, amongst others.
All CSD programs and services are free of charge with the exception of a modest fee for students requesting weekly clinician services. Students are encouraged to contact CSD to initiate the enrollment process well before beginning your first term at DePaul. This will enable students to be well-organized from the onset of the term and assist success.
A Mission Centered on Student Success
Student success is the core mission for CSD and fits integrally with DePaul University as a diverse learning community. Through individualized support services and reasonable accommodations, CSD strives to provide equal access to the DePaul experience and teach students skills and strategies to achieve academic success as well as segue into the workplace and their communities with confidence.
CSD staff works collaboratively with faculty and staff assisting their understanding of students with disabilities and how to effectively interact with them in the classroom and other situations in their life at DePaul.
