Center for Students with Disabilities

About

DePaul University is committed to providing students with disabilities equal access to DePaul’s educational and co-curricular opportunities so that students may fully participate in the life of the university. The Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) services are available to students with diverse physical, learning, medical, mental health and sensory disabilities. The Center offers supports to students to achieve their academic goals while promoting their independence. CSD is a resource to the many university departments that share the responsibility of supporting the members of our diverse learning community.

​Scope of Practice

The CSD works with students and DePaul faculty and staff to issue reasonable accommodations in order to create an accessible and equitable experience for all. Accommodations are issued in order to remove the barriers that hinder people with disabilities' access to all that DePaul has to offer.

The CSD issues reasonable accommodations within the following guidelines:

  • Accommodations do not modify academic standards
  • Accommodations do not fundamentally alter an essential element of a program or service
  • Accommodations do not present a health or safety risk to others
  • Accommodations do not present an undue administrative or financial burden
