Disability Services

Cameron University is committed to meeting the needs of students with disabilities based upon documentation of a disability covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), as amended, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended. It is the university’s philosophy that students with a disability must have equal educational opportunities.


Disability Services provides the following services and support:

  • Facilitates access for academic services to students with disabilities
  • Coordinates any special classroom needs for the student
  • Interacts with faculty if the student has a problem in class or needs information or referrals to other departments or agencies
  • Increases faculty understanding of the needs of students with disabilities

You must self-identify and provide required documentation of the disability in a timely manner in order to receive accommodations in the learning environment. A Request for Accommodations form is available in The Office of Student Development in 314 North Shepler or online at www.cameron.edu/disability_services. Students will meet with a Student Development staff member to discuss individual needs, rights and responsibilities.


Some examples of resources and services available to students with disabilities include:

  • Adaptive technology
  • Alternate testing, such as extended time or a distraction-free testing environment
  • Alternate formats for print materials
  • Faculty notification for accommodations and learning strategies
  • Note-taking assistance
  • Scholarship information

The Office of Student Development does NOT evaluate requests for employment accommodations. Cameron University employees, including student workers, must contact the Human Resources Office to request employment accommodations.
