Disability Services

It is the policy and practice of the University of Missouri School of Law to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and state and local requirements regarding students and applicants with disabilities. No individual shall be discriminated against by the University of Missouri School of Law because of a disability, nor shall any qualified individual with a disability be denied access to or participation in Law School services, programs, or activities because of the disability. The School of Law is committed to providing reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities, though the School is not required to make accommodations that are unduly burdensome or that fundamentally alter the nature of the program.

Students who have been accepted for admission are advised to contact the admissions office as possible regarding disabilities that might require accommodation. Early identification of disabilities is necessary to allow adequate time to evaluate documentation and to coordinate accommodations. The accommodation process takes some time, so the Law School may be unable to grant last-minute requests for accommodation.

For more information on disability resources, please see MU’s Disability Center.

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.
