Student Disability Services

The mission of Student Disability Services (SDS) is to help USF students with disabilities serve as fully contributing and actively participating members of the university community while acquiring and developing the knowledge, skills, values, and sensitivity to become women and men for others. Toward that end, SDS promotes a fully integrated university experience for students with disabilities by ensuring that students have equal access to all areas of student life and receive appropriate educational support and services to foster their academic and personal success. We provide a wealth of accommodations for students to feel at home from orientation to graduation. Learn more about our offerings for students, as well as information for faculty and families.
