The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, seeks to reach its highest level of academic and personal achievement. The Mission of The Disability Services Office is to collaborate with and empower students who have disabilities in order to coordinate support services and programs that enable access to an education and university life. Through our various student services and programs, we emphasize the importance or recognizing and embracing individual differences. In keeping with this Mission, UAPB is committed to helping students with disabilities obtain equal access to academic and programmatic services while allowing students to maintain a sense of independence.
The student has an obligation to self-identify that he/she has a disability and needs accommodations. UAPB will require that the student provide appropriate documentation, at the student’s expense, in order to establish the existence of the disability and the need for accommodations.
The student should have his/her documentation from a Clinical Psychologist, Physical/Vocational Evaluator, etc... for our records. The report should be no more than three years old. IEP is not an acceptable documentation, but can be used as a reference.
The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff is in full accord with the spirit set forth in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 which prohibits discrimination on the basis of a physical or mental disability. All programs and activities are open to students with disabilities whose participants may be limited. Although UAPB does not offer a specialized curriculum for persons with disabilities or assume the role of a rehabilitation center, UAPB offers a variety of support services so that students with disabilities are admitted and integrated as completely as possible into the university.
Assistive Technology is available to students registered with the Office of Disability Services.
