Students with disabilities

Services for students with disabilities at UCSF are coordinated by Student Disability Services (SDS). Students must self-identify and register with SDS in order to access accommodations at the School of Pharmacy. Accommodation plans and services are individually designed to match the disability-related needs of each student for their course or program with a goal to provide equal access to all aspects of the University environment. Accommodations are determined with consideration of documented need as described in disability documentation and student self-report, historical accommodations and services received, and the technical and academic requirements of the course or program. Typical accommodations might include (but are not limited to) test-taking arrangements, note taking services, alternate format media, ASL interpreters or real-time captioning, accommodations for the clinical environment, and accessible parking. For more information, please contact Student Disability Services, Library, 530 Parnassus Avenue, Room 111 UCSF, San Francisco, CA 94143-0376; 415-476-6595; [email protected].
