In concert with the mission of the Division of Campus Life, Disability Services within the Learning Assistance Center (LAC-DS) exists to enable students with disabilities to experience equal access to the academic, social, and recreational activities and programs at Wake Forest University. To achieve the goal of “equal access,” the LAC-DS staff works with students, faculty and staff to implement services and accommodations that are in accordance with both state and federal laws and our own commitment to this goal.
The size of Wake Forest University enables the LAC-DS staff to work in an individual manner with students who choose to disclose disabilities. Once a student is admitted to Wake Forest, he or she must complete the following steps to request academic accommodations:
If architectural or extensive accommodations are anticipated, then early disclosure to the Learning Assistance Center and Disability Services is most helpful.
