Southwestern makes every effort to provide reasonable accommodations for students with attentional, medical, psychological, learning, or temporary disabilities through the Dean of Students and Diversity Affairs Office. Examples of accommodations include notetaking services, special chairs, extra time on exams, reduced distraction testing environment, breaks during exams, etc.
Those requiring accommodations for a disability should complete the form using the following link to initiate the application process to request accommodations. Students should apply for accommodations as early as possible to provide sufficient time for the review process to be completed.
Indicating a disability on the admissions application does not serve to provide notice to Southwestern of a student's need for accommodations during law school. Students who do not seek accommodations need not make their disabilities known.
It is the policy and practice of Southwestern to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and state and local requirements regarding students and applicants with disabilities.
