How do I qualify for Disability Support Services?

By law, students may qualify for services if they have a disability, which substantially limits one or more major life activities/functions (i.e. learning, speaking, hearing, seeing, etc.).  Some, but certainly not all, of the disabilities covered include: AIDS, arthritis, attention deficit disorder, carpal tunnel syndrome, cancer, cardiac diseases, dyslexia, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, and psychiatric disabilities, including many forms of depression.

To obtain services a student must:

  • Be accepted for admission at Texas Woman's University.
  • Complete an application packet available through DSS.
  • Provide documentation of disability.
  • Complete an intake interview to determine accommodations.
