Academic Catalog 2021-2022

STUDENT ACCESSIBILITY SERVICES OFFICE (SASO)

The mission of the Student Accessibility Services Office (SASO) is to ensure that qualified individuals with diagnosed disabilities are provided an equal opportunity to access and participate in University programs, services, and activities through the provision of accommodations and advocacy.  

Confidential services are made available for all currently enrolled TSU students at no charge. We offer individualized services that are structured to support and assist students in attaining their educational goals. Registered students are provided effective auxiliary aids, reasonable academic accommodations, and supportive service referrals based on the disability. Assistive technology and equipment are available in the SASO Lab to support academic challenges. Academic Enhancement Trainings are offered to develop and/or enhance student’s study skill sets. SASO's motto is to promote self-awareness, self-determination, and self-advocacy in a comprehensive accessible environment. 

SASO upholds and maintains the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the ADA Amendment Act of 2008, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 higher education compliance standards to ensure policies, procedures, and practices are non-discriminatory. 

SASO is located at the Student Health Center, room 140. SASO office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm.  

For further information, contact SASO at 713-313-4210 or email DisabilityServices@tsu.edu.  

Some modifications were made for the ADA Policy - Procedures for requesting accommodations. I am not certain if I have the authority to make changes to the university policy. However, the information list is not accurate. I will contact General Counsel to inquire about the need to update the university ADA policy. Below are the modifications made to the provided section.
