Resources for Students with Disabilities

Qualified individuals are entitled to reasonable accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Carnegie Mellon takes great efforts to provide physical and programmatic campus access to everyone and the Office of Disability Resources serves as links between students with disabilities and the campus community. 

To access services/accommodations, individuals must first refer themselves to the Office of Disability Resources and provide adequate documentation of the disability. The first step in this process is to complete a Voluntary Disclosure of Disability Form and contact the Director of Disability Resources, Catherine Getchell to set up an appointment by email getchell@cmu.edu or by phone at 412-268-6121. 

Accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis. All information will be considered confidential and only released to appropriate personnel on a need to know basis. For more information on services to students with disabilities contact Catherine Getchell or you can also visit the Office of Disability Resources website http://www.cmu.edu/education-office/disability-resources/.
