MBU Student Disability Accommodation Process

Spartan Statue

The Student Disability Services Office offers services to students who have documented disabilities of a permanent or temporary nature. To qualify for services, students must self-identify to the Student Disability Services Office. Students must meet with a Student Disability Services Office Coordinator to discuss their needs and provide appropriate written documentation of a disability from a qualified professional or agency. Missouri Baptist University strives to remove barriers for individuals with disabilities in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the American with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) of 2008.

Students who need accommodations must register each semester with the Student Disability Services Office. Verification of Individual Student Accommodation (VISA), which describes the student’s needed accommodations, will be initiated with the student’s written permission. It is the student’s responsibility to deliver the VISAs and discuss his/her needs with each instructor.
