Student Accessibility Services (SAS) views disabilities as an integral part of the rich diversity at the University of Central Florida. To that end, we work collaboratively with students, faculty, and staff to create an inclusive educational environment for students.
SAS acknowledges that classroom and campus accessibility needs and considerations are expanding as more classes and campus experiences incorporate online and technological components. We are happy to discuss any course or campus barriers that may be preventing access to education and an equitable campus experience for students.
Please use the links in the navigation bar above to learn more about the SAS resources and processes or to contact our office.

What is the Workforce Recruitment Program?
The Workforce Recruitment Program is for college students with disabilities. It is a recruitment and referral program that connects federal and private sector employers with highly motivated college students, graduate students, and recent graduates with disabilities who are eager to prove their abilities in the workplace through summer or permanent jobs.
To be eligible a student must:
- have a disability and be eligible under the Schedule A hiring authority
- be a United States citizen
- be enrolled in a degree program on a substantially full-time basis OR have graduated with a degree in April 2016 or more recently.
Please visit www.wrp.gov for additional information regarding WRP and click on the student registration button to get started! If you have questions or would like more details, please contact Missy Lesnewski with Student Accessibility Services at 407-823-2371 or Melissa.Lesnewski@ucf.edu.
All application materials must be uploaded to the WRP site by October 17th by 12:00am PST. No late applications will be accepted. You will need time to get your registration approved by your coordinator, gather your resume and transcript, and complete your application, so please don’t delay!
If you are interested in connecting with SAS for the Fall 2017 semester, please note that our busiest stretch of new student meetings is between mid-August through the end of September. While we do everything we can to be as efficient as possible to see as many students as quickly as possible, students may need to wait 7 – 14 days in order to get an appointment during this peak period. We recommend you contact us as soon as possible and schedule an appointment. Please note, if you need to reschedule an appointment for any reason after it is scheduled, you will be rescheduled at the next available time, which may be at least 7 days out.
With internship options for students in a wide variety of majors, TWC provides you with the opportunity to earn academic credit through your college or university while living and working in our nation's capital. TWC's infrastructure is designed to help you experience a smooth adjustment to your new surroundings in Washington, D.C. and to prepare you to transition from being a student to becoming a working professional.

Student Development and Enrollment Services (SDES) announced the merger between Student Accessibility Services (SAS) and Inclusive Education Services (IES) on November 20, 2015. The new office will strengthen our ability to provide support services and academic accommodations to students with disabilities and promote awareness of disability issues. Dr. Adam Meyer has been promoted to executive director and will lead the new office.
Dr. Meyer has served as director of SAS since June 2013 and interim director of IES since July, 2015. In partnership with the University of South Florida St. Petersburg, Florida International University and Florida State College of Jacksonville, Dr. Meyer helped secure a five-year, $2.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education to establish the Florida Consortium on Inclusive Higher Education to create and expand high-quality transition and postsecondary programs for students. UCF is the lead institution for the consortium. During his tenure, students accessing SAS has increased by 51%. IES, which was successfully launched this fall, will increase enrollment to 10 students in spring 2016.
