Office of Student Disability and Accessibility Services

Mission Statement

The Office of Student Disability and Accessibility Services (OSDAS) at Regis College is committed to providing all students equal access to learning opportunities, programs, resources, and facilities. As such, the office coordinates support services and reasonable accommodations for students with documented disabilities. In keeping with the mission of Regis College and the charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston, the OSDAS takes an individualized approach, promotes self-advocacy, and works to empower each student to achieve his or her fullest potential.

About

Students with disabilities access specific support and accommodations through the Office of Student Disability and Accessibility Services (OSDAS), located within the Academic Center for Excellence in College Hall 389. As part of the Office of Student Affairs, OSDAS offers comprehensive services that connect students with academic and social support systems.

While the director of OSDAS oversees and protects students' legally mandated accommodations, students are partners in the process of academic support, and learn about themselves and explore their considerable abilities. The fundamental goal of services and support for students with disabilities is to empower those students and to create opportunities for greater independence and self-advocacy.

While Regis College does not offer specific academic programs for individuals with specific disabilities, the College is committed to providing support and accommodations to eligible students who have a documented need, have self-disclosed by making direct contact with OSDAS, and are legally eligible to receive accommodation based on documentation provided within the context of the Americans with Disabilities Act, or ADA.

Students need to meet with the director of the Office of Student Disability and Accountability Services, complete an application form, sign releases and provide necessary documentation related to his/her disability. Once received, an evaluation will be made as to whether eligibility is warranted as a “reasonable accommodation.” Students need to understand that eligibility determination is not retroactive, and is only granted once proper documentation has been submitted and reviewed by the director.
