To be eligible for support from Loyola's Disability Support Services (DSS), students must first meet the academic standards set for admission into the University. Once admitted to Loyola, the student is responsible for disclosing his or her disability to the office of disability support services in order to receive services. Recent documentation of the disability is required for a student requesting services. This confidential information is maintained in the DSS office and not released without the student's signed consent.

To register with disability support services, please take these steps:

1.) Complete the online DSS registration

You can submit your documentation of the disability which meets Loyola's guidelines regarding the specific disability and upload it on the registration link above.
