We believe all Wingate University students should have equal access to the university’s programs and activities. We help to make it happen.
The Office of Disability Support Services works with professors and staff to provide accommodations that give students with disabilities equal access. To accomplish this, we provide services such as the following:
- Adjusting a student’s meal plan because of a medical condition
- Arranging for interpreters or captioning services
- Granting a student extra time to take tests because of a learning disability
Whatever the need may be, we’re your voice if you need accommodations to have equal access to the university’s programs and activities.
