Disability Access (DA) provides access services to Gonzaga University's programs, services, activities, and facilities for qualified students with disabilities in compliance with federal and state laws.
Disability Access arranges or provides academic accommodations, auxiliary aids, assistive technology and other types of assistance for students with disabilities. Applying for accommodation is a voluntary, self identifying process - initiated by the student.
Disability Access recognizes disability as an aspect of diversity that is integral to society and our campus. DA staff work with Gonzaga University students to ensure that they have equal access to GU's programs and services.
Whether a student is transitioning from high school, the military, community college, or another university, it is important to be aware of the process to request accommodations and/or auxiliary aides due to a disability or temporary health condition.
Please know that it can take up to 15 business days for Disability Access to complete a review of your application and supporting documentation. This is based on a number of potential factors including, but not limited to: the nature of the student's accommodation request and the availability of appropriate supporting documentation. (See our documentation guidance on our "Process for Securing Accommodations" page.)
- Newly admitted GU students are advised to start the process once they have confirmed admission to Gonzaga University.
- Gonzaga students who are already enrolled should engage with DA as soon as possible once they have identified a barrier and/or need.
Generally once accommodations are established, they are applied proactively rather than retroactively, so planning ahead is important!
If you are seeking accommodation please read carefully over the "Process for Securing Accommodations" page.
