We’re committed to making a Hope education accessible.

Our services are individualized to ensure reasonable accommodations for students with documented disabilities, to promote and support students in self-advocacy, and to educate faculty, staff and students about disabilities.

Eligibility

Students at Hope who have an impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities may seek assistance from our office.

Getting started

  1. Register with Disability and Accessibility Resources by filling out a Request for Accommodations form.
  2. Meet with Disability and Accessibility Resources staff to discuss your individual needs.
  3. Gather documentation that reflects your current abilities and limitations.

Come see us

We are co-located with the Academic Success Center in Van Zoeren 261. Office hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Test proctoring occurs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the semester. You can make appointments by calling 616.395.7925 to talk with a real live person or by scheduling directly into Jeanne's calendar or Carrie's calendar.

A personalized holistic approach

You know yourself and your support needs best. Because there may be times we aren't your best option, we work closely with multiple offices across campus.
