New Students

Welcome to CWRU!

We are very excited that you have chosen to attend Case Western Reserve University and look forward to working with you on this enriching journey. We are dedicated to fostering the independence of students with disabilities. While we provide personal and administrative support, our philosophy encourages students to take responsibility for their academic and co-curricular activities.

You are responsible for initiating and continuing the processes involved in securing accommodations. At the post- secondary level, students (not parents) must keep in contact with the Disability Resources office to maintain their eligibility and secure services.

Accommodations cannot be made retroactively. While students can register anytime during the semester, please keep in mind accommodations only begin after you have registered with our office.

The Disability Resources staff is available to all students (undergraduates, graduate, and professional students). Students should call the office at 216.368.5230 and schedule appointments as needed.
