SSU's Disability Services staff is committed to working with students with disabilities to assess their needs and to assist with academic accommodations that may be necessary and appropriate due to their disability.  We are committed to assisting each student reach his/her maximum potential through the pursuit of educational goals.  The primary goal is to assure equal access to all aspects of the college experience for students with disabilities through reasonable accommodation.  

The Office of Disability Services assists in the coordination of appropriate services, based on the student's individual documented needs.   We also seek to enhance understanding of disabilities and provide support within the campus community. Our office motto is HELP is not a BAD 4 letter word.  All students need to realize that the intake process, documentation review, and arrangements take time.  Please apply for services well in advance.  It is best to call and schedule an intake appointment with Mrs. Amelia Castilian-Moore as soon as you are accepted for admission to SSU.  

Our office also works closely with Human Resources to assist SSU employees with disabilities to arrange accommodations that enable them to meet the essential functions of their jobs.
