For Students: Getting Started

If you are a current student with a cognitive, psychological and/or physical disability, Disability Support Services (DSS) is here to ensure that you receive support services that will equalize your access to course material and campus activities.

In contrast to high school, where students with disabilities are entitled to certain services, in college, you must become approved or eligible for services based on the guidelines set forth by your college/university (Read “Disability and Higher Education FAQs” for more general information). At Trinity, this means that you must first register with DSS before you can request support services and accommodations.

  • If you are ALREADY REGISTERED with Trinity’s DSS office, go directly to Requesting Services

 

DSS Registration Procedures

In order to be recognized by Trinity Washington University as a student with a disability and request support services/accommodations, you are required to register with the Disability Support Services (DSS) office. This can take place once you have enrolled for the upcoming semester. If you are returning to Trinity for another Trinity degree or if you are returning after two or more semesters of non-enrollment, you must re-register with DSS. DSS registration is a two step process:

  1. Obtain Your Disability Documentation

  2. Participate in an Intake Meeting with DSS

 

If you would like to be contacted by DSS to discuss services, please complete a Self-Identification Form (PDF) and return it to:

Disability Support Services
Sheehan Library 103
125 Michigan Ave NE
Washington, DC 20017


For more information, contact Disability Student Services by phone at 202-884-9358 or visit us in the Academic Services Center, Library 1st floor.
