Accommodations for Students with Disabilities
The Florida State University (FSU) College of Medicine welcomes qualified students with disabilities who meet the technical standards of the program, with or without reasonable accommodations.
If you are a student with a disability who needs reasonable accommodations to fully access your program, please do the following:
1. Please register with FSU’s Office of Accessibility Services (OAS; formerly known as the FSU SDRC - Student Disability Resource Center) online at https://dsst.fsu.edu/oas.
2. Meet with an OAS advisor for an intake meeting.
It is University policy that accommodations are not provided retroactively and cannot be provided without first registering with the OAS and scheduling an intake meeting with an advisor at the OAS.
3. If you receive a letter for accommodations, please provide our office with a copy for our records, as our office serves as the ADA Coordinator for the CoM. All records and documentation are confidential and stored within our office.
To ensure equitable access, students are encouraged to register with the OAS and schedule an intake meeting far in advance of the start of their program. Please know that all information about the OAS's policies will be given to you at your intake meeting. They are also available online, and we strongly encourage you to become familiar with these, via the OAS's website. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the accommodations process.
