Disability Support Services

Registering for Services


Students with disabilities are encouraged to contact Disability Support Services (DSS) prior to or upon enrollment at the University.  Students must complete the Application for Services and provide documentation as needed (see documentation guidelines).  Requests for services and accommodations will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and must relate specifically to the students’ disability.

DSS staff may act as a liaison regarding any disability accommodations.  In order to more effectively meet the access needs of Montevallo students with disabilities, DSS works closely with academic departments and other campus entities such as:

ASPIRE/Student Support Services Housing and Residence Life Student Health Services
