Disability Services

Students with disabilities can thrive at Emerson College.

The Disability Services Office (DSO) provides accommodations for students with disabilities, allowing them to take full advantage of their Emerson College experience.

Emerson College is committed to providing qualified students with disabilities equal access to the College’s programs, activities, and services, while maintaining the College's high standards of achievement. The College ensures that its policies, practices, and procedures conform to federal and state statutes and regulations.

The College’s philosophy is one of independence and self-determination. Students with disabilities—just like all students—have control over their lives at Emerson and are responsible for making decisions about the choices available to them.
