SAS – Student Accessibility Services

Student Accessibility Services (SAS) provides services designed to meet the unique educational needs of enrolled CoA students with documented disabilities.  Our professional staff works with each student to provide accommodations that ensure equal access to all academic programs, and to promote students’ independence so they may realize their academic potential and reach their goals.

We are changing our name from Programs and Services for Students with Disabilities (DSPS) to Student Accessibility Services (SAS)  so please note that you may see DSPS or SAS referenced in documents as we transition, these are both the same program.
