Disability Services

The University is committed to providing reasonable accommodations to individuals with appropriately documented physical, learning, or psychological disabilities, short-term and long-term.

Disclosing a disability and requesting accommodations are personal decisions. Brandeis does not require a student to disclose the existence of a disability. Once documentation has been reviewed and accommodations have been confirmed, students who wish to receive accommodations must request them in advance of each term during which they plan to take courses. 

Accommodations are proscriptive and cannot be applied retroactively. 

A “reasonable accommodation” is defined as any change in the educational environment that will allow students with a documented disability to perform the essential functions. All accommodations are made on a case-by-case basis.

If you have questions about the nature of documentation, please refer to the link below as Brandeis University follows the standards for documentation established by the Educational Testing Service:  https://www.ets.org/disabilities/documentation/
