Lasell University is committed to helping students achieve academic and personal success, both in and out of the classroom environment. The mission of the Office of Disability Services is to assist all students, including individuals with disabilities, to fully access the academic, residential, and social aspects of student life at Lasell University.
In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the University provides accommodations for eligible students with documented disabilities to afford equal access to educational programs and services in order to help students fully access the academic, residential, and social aspects of the student experience.
It is the individual student’s responsibility to formally disclose a disability to the Institution and to follow the appropriate process to request and access accommodations as needed. Lasell University recognizes the right of the student to determine who receives disability-related information as well as the right to confidentiality. Upon review and determination of appropriate academic accommodations the student is responsible for follow-up with his/her individual faculty member(s). Lasell University ensures FERPA compliance, and therefore all documentation submitted to Disability Services will remain confidential.
