Summary Description

UCSF has a proud history of welcoming students with all types of disabilities into the professional schools and the Graduate Division. We pride ourselves in giving individualized consideration of each student’s abilities, the functional impact of their disability, and program standards in order to devise creative and innovative accommodation solutions to ensure equitable access to students with disabilities.

Being a graduate and professional school institution, there are some unique aspects of the educational experience at UCSF that may be different from your undergraduate experience. These aspects are worth discussing with Student Disability Services (SDS) as you consider what accommodations you might need, and what transition plan you may want to put in place to prepare for academic and clinical experiences at UCSF.

SDS Mission

Student Disability Services (SDS) serves, supports, and empowers UCSF students with disabilities by ensuring equitable access to fully and holistically participate in all areas of the university experience.
