Disability Services

In the Jesuit spirit of cura personalis – care for the individual person – Disability Services offers Wheeling Jesuit University students with visible or invisible disabilities respect, accessibility, and appropriate and confidential individualized accommodations that promote academic success and encourage personal responsibility for achievement and lifelong learning.

Students with documented disabilities are offered individual accommodations on a case-by-case basis with confidentiality in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.  It is up to students with disabilities to seek out available resources on campus through Disability Services and to utilize individualized accommodations that support the opportunity to achieve academic success.

Students with documented disabilities are responsible for meeting with the Disability Services director at the start of each semester to develop an Accommodation Plan.  Students are responsible for providing current and comprehensive documentation of a visible or invisible disability, for requesting specific accommodations, and for following the procedures for utilizing any accommodations. Students are encouraged, but not required, to utilize any recommended accommodations.
