The Disability Services Office at Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell provides services to students with disabilities to ensure accessibility to university programs. For academic purposes, our services may include disability-related and referral information, extended testing time, preferential seating, reader services, books in audio format, large print material, adaptive equipment, taping of lectures, and other auxiliary aids. Academic accommodations are provided to eligible students free of charge.
According to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, a disability is defined as a mental or physical impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities: self-care, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, learning, and working. If you have a disability that impacts your academic performance, provide current documentation by a qualified professional and schedule an appointment with the Disability Services Office.
The student is responsible for delivering the academic accommodation information (AAI) form to his/her instructors. This form is generated during the initial meeting/intake interview. Students are required to meet with their instructor(s) to discuss their accommodations for each term they are enrolled at ENMU-Roswell. Eligible students are encouraged to schedule a meeting with the Disability Services Office as soon as possible, understanding that some accommodations cannot take effect immediately.
Students with disabilities have the right to equal access to courses, programs, activities, services, and facilities and are entitled to reasonable accommodations. All student information is kept confidential. The Disability Services Officer reserves the right to request additional information.
For a diagnosis of Learning Disability, ADHD, and other psychological disorders, a neuropsychological examination, psychological, or psycho-educational evaluation is required. Objective evidence of a substantial limitation must be provided. The evaluator’s name, professional credential relevant to the diagnosis, and his/her contact information must be documented. Documentation must be on letterhead, typed, dated, and signed.
The Student Success Center provides tutoring for all degree-seeking students on campus. Please contact your academic advisor for additional information.
