Abilities Office

Chicago State UniversityThe Abilities Office hopes to partner with you as you matriculate toward your educational goal at CSU.  We are a welcoming campus consisting of a diverse student body.  We are here to assist you by making sure any barriers that exist caused by a disability will be accommodated and that you have access to all of our programs and facilities.

The Abilities Office provides services and accommodations for qualified students with verified disabilities in accordance with provisions of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as amended. Accommodations are not retroactive. Once a student meets and establishes accommodations with the Abilities Office, accommodations will be applicable moving forward from the time Accommodation Letters are provided to professors.  Accommodations are unable to be applied to issues prior to the establishment of accommodations in the current academic term.

We also invite you to visit our counseling center for more assistance.  Please Click here to request a student counseling appointment
