ACCESS is the office of Disability Services at UVM. Their mission is to provide Accommodation, Consultation, Collaboration, and Educational Support Services as a means to foster opportunities for and empowerment of Students with Disabilities to participate in a barrier-free learning environment.
They serve as a resource to UVM and the larger community to advocate for a diverse learning community, educational equity and innovation through the principles of Universal Design. For more information about students with disabilities, please visit the ACCESS website.
If you have a disability, we suggest you:
- Visit www.uvm.edu/access. Click on “Newly Admitted Students.”
- Send documentation securely via mail, e-mail, or fax to ACCESS if you have
not already done so. Documentation Guidelines are on our website.
