The Student Office for Accessibility Resources is committed to providing students with disabilities an equal opportunity to access Furman's programs and facilities.​​​
We partner with the Housing and Residence Life Office, Health Services, Dining Services, and the Counseling Center to provide reasonable accommodations for students with medical, physical, or psychological conditions.

Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 state that no "otherwise qualified" individuals, solely by reason of their disability, can be denied the benefits of, be excluded from participation in or be subjected to discrimination in any program or activity.

Furman University recognizes a student with a disability as anyone whose impairment substantially limits one or more major life activity. Students may receive a variety of services including classroom accommodations such as extended time on tests, test proctoring, note-taking assistance and access to assistive technology. However, receipt of reasonable accommodations cannot guarantee success--all students are responsible for meeting academic standards.

Students requesting services should contact the Student Office for Accessibility Resources and provide appropriate documentation of their disability. It is the responsibility of the student with the disability to obtain and pay for this documentation. Some accommodations require significant planning; therefore, students should begin the process well in advance.
