Disability & Access Center


MTSU is committed to insuring that students with disabilities have an equal opportunity to fully access and participate in their educational experience at MTSU.

Disabled Student Services is available to assist you in coordinating accommodations that will give you an equal opportunity and help you maximize your learning potential as you make the transition into, through, and out of the University.

Once you have chosen MTSU, the following guidelines will assist you in making a smooth transition into the University:

  1. Review the Disabled Student Services web page for accommodations, policies, and procedures.
  2. Submit current, comprehensive, professional documentation of your disability to Disabled Student Services. Your documentation will be evaluated based on the appropriate guidelines located on the web site at: http://www.mtsu.edu/dssemail/forms.php.
  3. Complete a Disabled Student Services Registration Application for services. Return all documents to Disabled Students Services via mail to MTSU, PO Box 7, Murfreesboro, TN 37132, via fax (615-898-4893), via email (dssemail@mtsu.edu), or in person (KUC 120).
  4. Once all documents are received, we will review your documentation and call to set up a meeting to discuss it further. If your documentation meets our guidelines, we will complete the registration process and discuss appropriate accommodations. (If you submit documentation, but for some reason do not hear from DSS within 2 weeks, then please call 615-898-2783 to request a meeting.)

It is the student's responsibility to arrange for certain services which are outside the scope of Disabled Student Services and the University. These services include, but may not be limited to, attendant care, mobility training, items/services of a personal nature, and sources of financial aid. Disabled Student Services will be glad to consult with you regarding your special needs and possible local resources.
