Accommodations and Accessibility Services
The purpose of Glenville State University's Accommodations and Accessibility Office is to provide the educational and physical accessibility support necessary for students to achieve their academic goals. We also serve to promote independence and self-advocacy of students with disabilities to better their chances of success. Glenville State University offers a wide range of services and accommodations to students with disabilities in order to make all programs, services and activities fully accessible to students. The Accommodations and Accessibility Office's Counselor works with students to individualize the type and level of accommodations needed for a successful college career. Accommodations, services, and equipment may be provided on an as-needed basis. The Glenville State University Accommodations and Accessibility Counselor's office is conveniently located on the third floor of the Robert F. Kidd Library within the Academic Success Center.
