Disability Services

As part of the Wellness Center, the office of Disability Services at UMass Lowell promotes diversity and inclusion by partnering with the campus community. We create equal access by removing barriers, promoting diversity, employing universal design and striving for inclusion.

Students: While classes are being administered online, all interaction with Disability Services will be over the phone or email.

Faculty: If you are transitioning to Blackboard Exams, please read the Blackboard test instructions on how to provide access for extended time accommodations.

If you have a documented disability and would like to register for Academic Accommodations, please follow these instructions:

  1. Complete the Public Accommodation online Request Form. Please note that you will need your UMass Lowell student email and password to log into the system.
  2. Upload your documentation to your completed Public Accommodation online Request Form. You can view the types of documentation we accept.
  3. Once this process is complete, you will need to check your UMass Lowell email account for notification of when you can book an Intake Appointment with our office. Intake appointments can be scheduled once both the Public Accommodation Request and the documentation have been reviewed by our team of specialists. During this one on one meeting, our staff and student work together to establish an accommodation plan to help students access the curriculum. Meetings are private and confidential.
