About Us

The University of Texas-Pan American Disability Services provides services that enable students to participate fully in the learning experience and be evaluated on the basis of their abilities, not their impairments. These services include but are not limited to:

  • Extended testing time
  • Quiet, distraction free testing site
  • Reader/Scribe services
  • Note-taker services
  • Carbonless NCR paper
  • A liaison between students and faculty
  • Recorded text
  • Adjustable tables and lumbar support chairs
  • Adaptive equipment
  • Sign language interpreter services
  • Referrals to on or off campus resources

Strong emphasis is placed upon student responsibility and self-advocacy. Students needing accommodations in the class room, must complete a Semester Registration form at the end of each semester in order to have letters ready for your Professors for the next semester.
