Disability Services at Michigan Tech provides support and resources for students with or without a documented disability. Students do not need to have documentation of a disability to discuss strategies for college success with the coordinator of student disability services; incoming students who would like to meet with the coordinator should make an appointment as early as possible in their first semester.
The evaluation, on the letterhead of an appropriate professional, and addressing each of the listed guidelines, may be mailed or faxed to the addresses listed below. For information about our documentation policy, please review the Student Disability Policy and information about Documenting a Disability.
Failure to register a disability with the office in a timely manner will lead to delays in receiving services.

While we will review IEP/504 Plans, these tend not to be as helpful in assisting students as actual diagnostic test results with interpretations from medical specialists.
If you have further questions, please call us at 906-487–3558.
We offer many accommodations for students who provide supporting documentation of a disability. These range from accommodations in the classroom to special software on all computers in the library. Review a list of these accommodations.
Faculty who are looking for detailed descriptions of classroom accommodations can find them separately through our online definitions.
