The Office of Student Development and Counseling Services assists RISD students who have either cognitive (learning) or physical disabilities. This information is requested on a voluntary basis only.
If you believe that you have a physical or cognitive disability that requires an accommodation, you should submit a description of your need for accommodation and documentation concerning your disability to:
Coordinator of Disability Support Services
504 Coordinator/ADA Compliance Officer
63 Angell Street, Providence, RI 02906
All students that require accommodation are asked to make an appointment to meet with a member of the staff of the Office of Student Development and Counseling Services.
Many disabilities may be accommodated merely by giving you extra time to take examinations, offering oral examinations, taping lectures and
class discussions, having class notes available or making similar modifications in classroom procedures.
