The Special Needs Office provides services for individuals with major life disabilities, such as physical disabilities, learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, visual impairments, hearing impairments, short-term disabilities and/or medical disabilities. In order to receive services, you must self-identify your disability to our office.
If you do not wish to seek classroom accommodations but have physical disabilities that may limit your mobility around campus, it is important that you contact the Special Needs Access Office to discuss your needs prior to your arrival on campus. We want to be proactive and address any accessibility concerns so that your collegiate experience is a positive one.
As soon as you enroll, please contact the Special Needs Access Office for an appointment so that we can update your files, sign all the necessary paperwork, and work out the necessary accommodations you might need to have a successful year at Missouri Baptist University. The Special Needs Access Office is housed in the Academic Success Center, Room 117 in the Field Academic Hall (Main Campus). The Special Needs Access Coordinator, Jennifer Davis, can be reached via phone at (314) 485-8473 or email at Jennifer.Davis2@mobap.edu.
