Special Services for Students with Special Needs


The university has an open-arm policy that encourages the admission and participation of students with special needs and thereby require special services. This category of persons are also referred to as Physically Challenged students. However inclusive this last nomenclature is, its doubtful as it tends to give the impression that unless one has one form of disability or the other, one does not qualify for special care.

The other classifications of Students with Special Needs, is equally problematic as it is so inclusive that it tends to hide the varying specifics of this class of students and consequently becloud what nature of assistance each person within this category requires. However, the unit responsible for this grouping of students oversees such assistance as special housing arrangements, special transportation, etc.
