Student Affairs - Dean's Office

Disability Resources Notification Form

This form is for students new to the University only. Students who have disabilities, even if they do not intend to use reasonable accommodations, should notify Disabilities Resources that they are coming to campus by submitting the form below.  Entering students often have questions about whether to register with this office. There may be benefits to registering with the office regardless of a need for formal accommodations. The Associate Dean for Student Academic Resources*, who coordinates Disability Resources, will talk with students individually and confidentially about the services at Wesleyan and differences between high school and college. The dean will help students think through the implications of not requesting reasonable accommodations during the first semester at Wesleyan. For many students, Wesleyan provides a less structured environment that presents unfamiliar or unforeseen challenges. The first semester at Wesleyan can be smoother with reasonable accommodations in place. 

Notification Form

For information on how to register with the office and what supporting documentation is needed to request accommodations, please go to the Student Guide.
