Mission Statement

Student Disability Services provides appropriate accommodations to students with disabilities so that they gain equal access to the college’s programs and services. By advocating for and creating an accessible environment for students with disabilities, the office empowers students to become their own advocates and helps them develop the skills necessary to succeed.

Once students have self-identified, applied for services, and provided documentation of their disability, our staff works to determine eligibility for reasonable accommodations. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), both the student and the College must carry out these responsibilities in a timely manner. Student Disability Services also acts as a liaison between the student and faculty and staff.

This office is an official New York State Voter Registration site. Individuals who visit our office are given the opportunity to register as New York State voters. Assistance is available to complete the registration. For more information please visit the State Board of Elections home page at www.elections.ny.gov/voting.html.

A Grievance relating to either reasonable accommodations or a Baruch program, service, or activity that is not accessible to persons with disabilities should be filed with the Office of Diversity, Compliance, and Equity Initiatives, Baruch College, One Bernard Baruch Way, Box C204, NY, New York 10010. Phone: 646.312.4542.

We are an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action College with the City University of New York (CUNY) that encourages campus diversity.
