The Office of Accessible Education and Counseling Services approves and coordinates accommodations and services for students with disabilities in order to acquire skills essential to achieve academic and personal success.
Registration with The Office of Accessible Education and Counseling Services is on a voluntary, self-identifying basis. However, services are only available after a student has registered and presents certified current documentation of the specific disability from a psychologist, physician, or other appropriate professional. All information and documentation are strictly confidential.
The Office of Accessible Education and Counseling Services at Brandman University is committed to ensuring equal educational access and opportunity for all members of our academic community.
