At Student Life Disability Services (SLDS), we are committed to creating an accessible educational experience for students with disabilities. We partner with students, faculty and staff to design accessible environments and to provide academic accommodations and support services.
Access matters, because:
- Students with disabilities make up an important cross-section of Ohio State. Approximately 1 out of 5 undergraduate students and 1 out of 8 grad students have a disability (source).
- It allows students to learn and be evaluated fairly, based on their merits (not based on their disability-related barriers).
- It creates pathways for students with disabilities to achieve their full potential, leading to higher retention, graduation, and employment rates.
