Services for Students with Disabilities
LSUS is committed to making students with disabilities full participants in its programs, services, and activities through its compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. The Student Development Center assists both students with disabilities and the University in accomplishing this goal. The Student Development Center provides assessment of disability needs on campus, verification of accommodation needs, and recommendations regarding accommodations. Accommodations and services are based on the individual student’s disability-based need. Students should contact the office early so that necessary accommodations can be arranged. The Student Development Center also informs the administration of policies and issues relevant to students with disabilities and provides training for faculty and staff so the LSUS community gains a greater understanding of their responsibilities and the needs of students with disabilities. For information or to schedule an appointment, contact the Student Development Center, located in the Administration Building, Room 230 or call 318-797-5365. Any student who wishes to file a grievance related to disability status should contact the vice chancellor for student affairs at AD 208 or 318-797-5116.
