DSS is a resource for TWU students with disabilities on the Denton, Dallas, and Houston campuses. The Office is charged with the responsibility of determining appropriate accommodations for students in the classroom and in the use of University facilities in order to provide equal access to educational opportunities. The DSS staff facilitates services that allow students to have equal access to academic programs and services while providing the assistance and encouragement needed to meet the challenges of university life.

To obtain services, you must meet the following criteria:

  1. Receive notice of acceptance to TWU.
  2. Complete the application and intake process through DSS.
  3. Provide documentation indicating the presence of an impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities.
  4. Apply well in advance of the semester for which assistance is needed to obtain services in a timely manner.

Application and disability verification forms are available online through DSS. If you need additional information or have questions about accessibility issues for students with disabilities, please contact our office. All disability support services are handled through the Denton location.

(The student services and resources described are available to students currently enrolled at the University. For some services or events, a fee may be charged and/or proper TWU identification may be required. Services vary from one university site to another.)
