Services for Students with Disabilities

Current and prospective students are eligible to receive unlimited consultation from the Knox Center. Proof of disability (such as registration with SSD) is not required to make an evaluation appointment. Appointments are usually scheduled between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. on weekdays; exceptions may be made in unusual situations.

Assistive technology evaluations are an opportunity for members of the University of Michigan community to explore high-tech accommodation options for a temporary or permanent disability. Center staff members have extensive experience recommending accessibility solutions for people with all types or combinations of disabilities. There is no charge. To make an appointment, please contact Knox Center staff at


Please Bring to Your Appointment...

To get the most from your appointment, we suggest you bring the following:

  • Your glasses, wrist braces or any other devices you commonly use when computing.

  • Your personal portable device (laptop, tablet, etc.) if you have accessibility questions about its use.

  • If you have questions about your personal desktop computer, it is often helpful if you could bring some technical information—usually, its current amount of RAM, hard disk capacity, processor speed and monitor size. Please ask if you need assistance determining this information.

  • Examples of any course-related materials that you are having difficulty using.
