Students with Disabilities
The Career Center recognizes, respects, and aims to integrate students' diverse backgrounds, identities, and abilities into quality career development and planning.
Our events, resources, and opportunities are designed to ensure that all students have equal access, including students with disabilities. Students with disabilities can have unique challenges when choosing a major or career, interviewing for positions, and transitioning into the work world. Challenges can include if, when and how to disclose a disability and request reasonable accommodations for an internship or employment. Students with disabilities are encouraged to contact Accessibility & Disability Services (ADS) for more information regarding disclosure and accommodations.
In addition to the resources below, career counselors/advisors are available to answer questions and provide guidance.
