Disability Services


Our mission is to provide academic and residential accommodations and student support services, within the resources of the University, which will ensure students with disabilities the opportunity to competitively pursue a college education, limited only by their abilities, not their disabilities.


Alcorn State University is committed to following the legal requirements of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. Signed into law in 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act is the nation’s first comprehensive civil rights law for people with disabilities.
