Welcome to Student Disability Services (SDS)

The purpose of SDS is to coordinate services and accommodations for students with documented disabilities. Our most common activities include reviewing disability documentation, meeting with students to determine appropriate accommodations, and partnering with other areas on campus to implement these accommodations.

SDS strives to help students assume responsibility of their own educational experience. We assist students along the way by providing access and opportunity in order for them to reach their full potential.


The goal of Student Disability Services is to ensure that all students with disabilities are provided access to all facets of the Western Kentucky University experience; to facilitate and coordinate support services and programs that enable students with disabilities to maximize their educational potential; and to increase awareness among all members of the University so that students with disabilities are able to achieve academic success based on their abilities, not their disabilities.
