Student Accessibility Services

Guided by both the office's mission and federal law, Student Accessibility Services (SAS) is dedicated to guaranteeing that students with disabilities have equal access to all aspects of Trinity's campus by providing them reasonable accommodations. SAS policies and procedures explain to students the process to request specific accommodations and describe how they are implemented.
