Students with Special Needs

The Social Work Program supports the profession's commitment to recognize and serve special populations; and in accordance with State and Federal law, does not discriminate or deny admission on the basis of disability to any disabled person who is otherwise qualified. In order to give students with visual, learning, motor, or other conditions or learning disabilities special assistance, the program must be cognizant of these needs. Although students are not required to reveal disabilities during the application process, such information will be maintained in confidence and will help the faculty and staff in planning and advising around special needs. If a student desires special assistance, it is suggested that she/he advise the Director and/or the Director of Field Education.
