Office of Student Accessibility Services

Illinois Wesleyan University is committed to providing equal access to all campus programs, opportunities, and activities for students with disabilities or medical/mental health conditions. Determination of eligibility for reasonable accommodations and/or auxiliary aids is based on documentation received from qualified professionals. Documentation provided to Student Accessibility Services is considered private and will be used for the expressed purpose of establishing protection under the law, determining appropriate accommodations, and ensuring the effective implementation of those accommodations. All provided information will be protected against misuse by others.

Student Accessibility Services secures and maintains documentation of disabilities or medical/mental health conditions, as well as determines reasonable accommodations. The Assistant Director of Student Accessibility Services collaborates with the student, faculty, and staff to facilitate and implement reasonable accommodations and/or provide needed auxiliary aids.  

Students are responsible for identifying themselves to Student Accessibility Services, for providing relevant documentation, and for requesting accommodations each semester.  Additionally, students are strongly encouraged to contact the office as soon as they are admitted to the University.

Self-advocacy is highly encouraged for students with disabilities or medical/mental health conditions as they progress through their collegiate experience.
