Fostering Success Through Access

Student Accessibility Services recognizes the importance of collaborations with students, faculty, staff, and the campus community.  We strive to cultivate a universally designed environment, facilitating the removal of existing barriers for the full inclusion of people with disabilities.  We advocate for accessibility on behalf of the institution.  

We provide services and accommodations at no cost to all University of Vermont students who have current documentation of a disability that substantially limits one or more major life activities, including but not limited to walking, talking, learning, hearing, or seeing.

An example of a few of the services and accommodations provided include:

  • Access to assistive technology devices and software
  • Collaboration with Residential Life in the provision of housing accommodations
  • Distraction reduced testing center
  • Extended time on exams and quizzes
  • Print matter in alternate format
  • Note taking
  • Communication Access Real-Time Translation (CART)
  • Sign Language Interpreting


A major role of Student Accessibility Services is to communicate with faculty and students on constructing the best approach to implementing accommodations. Accommodations are made on a case-by-case basis according to the needs of the individual student and the nature of the student’s course of study.  Whenever possible, SAS engages in an interactive process with students and faculty so that students with disabilities are allowed equal access to the University’s academic programs.

SAS staff members always welcome inquiries, feedback, and/or requests for consultation and collaboration.
