Office of Specialized Services and Supplemental Instruction

Mission Statement

The mission of the Office of Specialized Services is to:

  • Provide equal access for students with disabilities to NJCU’s academic programs and activities in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act;
  • Provide reasonable accommodations for qualified students; and
  • Maintain an accessible environment for all students with disabilities.

The OSS/SI assists students in securing reasonable accommodations supported by documentation. Reasonable accommodations include, but are not limited to, alternate testing arrangements, adaptive/assistive technology, and assistance in arranging for sign language interpreters, books in alternate format, and peer note-takers.

It is the student’s responsibility to self-identify and to request services. Students requesting accommodations are required to submit appropriate and recent documentation of their diagnosed disabilities.
