Student Accessibility Support Services


The Student Accessibility Support Services (SASS) program provides, arranges, and coordinates services for students with learning, emotional, mental, and physical disabilities. The University is committed to providing equal opportunity and access for all students. When a qualified student provides documentation, SASS assists with specific needs by implementing accommodations which are a necessary part of enabling equal access to the institution’s programs and facilities. Accommodations may include:

Testing adjustments (e.g., extended time for testing)
Special equipment
In class support (e.g. note takers)
Interpreters’ services
Library assistance
Other accommodations as required to remove barriers to academic success

Initially, the SASS office will accept as documentation a summarized Individualized Education Plan (IEP) that is less than two years old. A 504 Plan or statement of disability issued by a licensed professional (physician, psychiatrist, counselor) substantiating disability is also accepted. Additionally, the University offers full assessment/evaluation at a nominal fee through the Counseling Center. Referrals to the Counseling Center will be made via the SASS office. The SASS Coordinator may be reached by phone at 443-885-3946 or by email at bernice.alston@morgan.edu.
