Office of Disability Services
Franklin University recognizes the needs of students with disabilities and is committed to providing accessible services, programs and educational opportunities. In addition to accessible facilities and plentiful parking, the Office of Disability Services is available to provide disabled individuals with additional assistance and guidance.
If you are a qualified student or prospective student who has a disability as defined under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or the guidelines for Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act, you may register with the Office of Disability Services.
We work closely with the Student Learning Center in personalizing accommodations and services to meet the individual needs of each qualified student. If you need accommodations such as taped or e-books, register as early as possible.
Please follow the guidelines below to register with the Office of Disability Services and request accommodations for your disabilities. All information must be provided within 5 years of diagnosis of your disability from a qualified individual. After you have completed the guidelines, an email verifying approved accommodations will be sent to you and each instructor of the courses in which you are registered.
For more information, or to schedule an appointment, please contact the Disability Services Coordinator at 614-797-4700, toll-free at 1-877-341-6300 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
