Welcome to Student Disability Services (SDS)

The purpose of SDS is to:
  • Provide services and accommodations to students with disabilities.
  • Work closely with faculty and staff in an advisory capacity.
  • Assist in the development of accommodations for students.
  • Provide equal access for “otherwise qualified” individuals with disabilities.


Student Disability Services supports students with physical, cognitive, mental/emotional or otherwise documented disabilities. Our goal is to provide facility and programmatic access through reasonable accommodations to allow students with disabilities an equal opportunity for academic success.


We foster a greater sense of awareness and social equity to enable St. Cloud State to become recognized as an institution that respects and empowers independence and academic success among students with disabilities.


We are committed to:

  • Providing the highest quality services possible to our constituents
  • Respecting differences and working toward greater diversity and inclusiveness
  • Demonstrating civility in all discourse
  • Use of fiscal and human resources to serve students in fulfilling the goals of Student Life and Development and the University mission.
