Disability Services and Accommodations 

New to the Disability Center?

If you are an MU student and you have a documented disability, the Disability Center can help you get what you need to have an equal educational opportunity at Mizzou. First you will want to establish an accommodation plan. Freshmen usually establish accommodations during Summer Welcome. You can do this at any time during the semester, however.

To establish accommodations, you will need to complete the following steps:

  • Fill out the new student application. You will be asked to login using your MU username and password. If you need to upload any documentation, you will be able to do so when filling out the application.
  • Schedule an Access Planning Meeting (APM) with an access advisor in the Disability Center by calling the Disability Center at 573-882-4696.

Third-party documentation

You may be asked to submit third-party documentation to apply for an accommodation plan. However, if you already have documentation, we encourage you to upload it with your application or bring it with you for your Access Planning Meeting. If you need to submit documentation and you have already completed the new student application, you can send the files by email or fax.

Returning Student?

If you have already established accommodations with the Disability Center and need to renew them for the upcoming semester, please log in to myAccess. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the office at 573-882-4696 or via email disabilitycenter@missouri.edu.
