Services for Students with Disabilities


How to Get Connected with SSD:

Step 1: Complete the Student Application Form 

Step 2: Schedule a Welcome Meeting

  • After submitting your Student Application Form you will receive an email from SSD with a link to schedule your Welcome Meeting with your assigned coordinator. 

  • If you are an incoming first year student, we recommend waiting until during or after orientation to meet with a SSD coordinator.

    • Due to the pandemic, meetings are primarily held remotely (Google Meet, Zoom, or Phone) but in-person meetings are available.

    • IMPORTANT: Please note emails from SSD will only be sent to your Umich email. Monitor your account for important updates and information.

Step 3: Welcome Meeting

  • During this meeting your coordinator will talk with you about disability-related barriers you may be experiencing, any history of accommodations, will explore reasonable accommodations, and discuss next steps. 

    • Coordinator may request additional documentation if needed.
