Services and Accommodation Policies and Procedures

The Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) Program provides academic accommodations to regularly enrolled California State University, Fresno students in accordance with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act and the California State University Policy for the Provision of Accommodations and Support Services to Students with Disabilities. The student must provide SSD with current written verification of disability from a professional who is qualified to determine the physical, perceptual or learning disability and the need for an academic accommodation.

In order for the campus and SSD to provide academic accommodations, the student must initiate the request personally with SSD. Any disability-related need that requires the assistance of the professor must be made known to the professor each semester. The professor is not expected to assume or remember the need for accommodations from semester to semester.

Previously the SSD Policy & Procedures Manual was available here, which provided details about each of our services and how to utilize those services. Based on student feedback, this information is better provided as part of each individual service as noted in the "Services Provided" section of our website. If additional information is required please feel free to call our main phone number at 559-278-2811 or email
