Students With Disabilities
The Counseling and Career Services Office provides services for Students with Disabilities at TAMUG.
The staff members of the Office of Student Counseling monitors and coordinate accommodations. The staff disseminate information about available services, evaluate requests for services to determine eligibility and appropriate accommodations, and assist students in obtaining those accommodations. To obtain services, students with disabilities must make the request to the Office of Student Counseling. Once eligibility is verified and accommodations are identified, the student approaches the relevant faculty or staff member to arrange the specific accommodation. The student will be given a letter from SSD verifying his/her eligibility for particular accommodations. Should a student request an accommodation without working with SSD, that student should be referred to and registered with SSD before the accommodation is provided. It is the student's responsibility to make his or her needs known.
The Office of Student Counseling is located in:
Seibel Student Services Center, Suite 104
Office Hours: Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
