To register with Disability Services, submit documentation of your disability. along with Walden University’s Accommodation Request form, to Disability Services (disability@mail.waldenu.edu).

The accommodation process includes:

  • Submission of Walden’s Accommodation Request form, along with documentation of disability, by the student.
  • Review of those materials by the Disability Services Director.
  • Exchange of emails between Disability Services and the student clarifying any unanswered questions.
  • Formal confirmation of approved accommodations via email from the Director of Disability Services to the student’s Walden email account.

Students are welcome to request a telephone appointment with the Disability Services Director to provide additional information or ask for clarification of processes at any time.

Using the documentation of disability provided by the student, along with the student’s responses to questions about the disability and barriers to access on the accommodation request  form, the Director of Disability Services determines the most appropriate accommodations.

Students receive confirmation of approved accommodations, with instructions for initiating accommodations each term, in the form of an email sent from disability@mail.waldenu.edu   

Students who disagree with the approved accommodations may ask for a review of their application and provide additional information at any time.  However, only confirmed approved accommodations will be provided during the review period.

Walden University is not obligated to provide accommodations until the application process has been completed and accommodations have been officially approved.  Students are encouraged to begin the process early to ensure accommodations are approved prior to beginning coursework.

Do you have any other questions about accommodations?  Email Disability Services at disability@mail.waldenu.edu.
