Learning Support Services for Student with Disabilities

Learning Support Services for Students with Disabilities (LSS) at Pacific University coordinates educational accommodations for students with disabilities. Disabilities may be physical or learning related, and may be permanent or temporary.

Academic standards require qualified documentation to receive accommodation. Students are responsible for furnishing this documentation to the university through LSS.

To help them succeed, Pacific University welcomes students to be forthcoming about their status and needs at any time.  Visit our Getting Started page for more information.
