Students with Disabilities
University Career Services understands that landing an internship or job is tough! That is why we are committed to supporting students with visible and invisible disabilities navigate their career exploration and preparation path. Below you will find resources specifically for students with disabilities.
Should I disclose?
The best thing for any applicant to do is know what they are entitled to under the law, and research what kind of accommodations they might need beforehand. It is important to remember that no two stories are the same, and the decision on when and if to disclose should be a personal one.
