Accessibility

Student Services

Colorado School of Mines is committed to providing equal access to University courses, programs, and activities for students, faculty, staff, and community members with a disability. In compliance with the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, University personnel work with qualified community members and guests to ensure equal access wherever and whenever possible.

For new fall semester students, May 1 is the recommended date by which to apply for services. While late requests are not denied, the early deadline is to ensure the student has completed registration with Disability Support Services and accommodations are in place at the start of the semester. Because the registration process takes time, late requests may result in delayed facilitation of services.
