Medical Students Accessibility Services

Welcome to the page for accommodations – this page is overseen by the Office of Medical Students Accessibility Services run by the SASS Office. UCF COM is committed to, and embraces, diversity in all forms.  Students seeking accommodations or support services at UCF COM are required to register with Student Academic Support Services (SASS). Students are expected to be actively responsible for all aspects of their enrollment in registering for accommodations.

A person with a disability is someone who has a physical or mental impairment that limits substantially one or more major life activities, such as caring for one’s self, performing manual tasks, learning, walking, seeing, hearing, breathing, and working; has a record of such an impairment; or is regarded as having such an impairment.

Although students with temporary illness or injury are not considered disabled by law, every reasonable effort to accommodate their needs will be exercised.
