Apply for Services with SSD

California State University, Fresno students who have a verified disability are eligible for services through the SSD office. To receive services, follow these steps:

  1. Students must complete an application and provide SSD with verification of a disability from an appropriate and acceptable professional. Documents including diagnosis, prognosis, and functional limitations assist SSD staff in providing the best fit accommodations. IEP/504 plan documents may be considered based on content. To access the Application for Services Form, please visit our SSD's Forms page.

  2. Make an appointment for an initial interview with an Access and Ability Specialist (AAS). When you meet with the AAS, you will discuss the functional limitations you may experience while on campus and different accommodations that may be helpful to you. 

  3. Additional appointments may be necessary for training and orientation in using specific accommodations to best serve the student.
