Disability Services

The CUNY School of Professional Studies (CUNY SPS) is firmly committed to making higher education accessible to students with disabilities by removing architectural barriers and providing programs and support services necessary for them to benefit from the instruction and resources of the University.

We provide and coordinate reasonable accommodations and support services to students with disabilities, as mandated by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and strive to increase the level of disability awareness among all members of the CUNY SPS community.

Early planning is essential for many of the resources and accommodations provided. Please contact us at the earliest possible date in order for us to assist with your needs.
