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.

News and Announcements
The Michael Yasick ADHD Scholarship by Shire recognizes and supports individuals with ADHD in the US who are pursuing higher education at a college, vocational school, or technical school in the United States.
The Scholarship includes a $2,000 monetary award and a prepaid year of ADHD coaching from the Edge Foundation to assist in the transition to higher education.
Fifty recipients will be selected in 2016, based on community service, volunteer and extracurricular activities, and a personal essay describing how ADHD has impacted their lives.
Shire, a global specialty biopharmaceutical company, sponsors the Scholarship as part of its work to support patients who are diagnosed with ADHD, their families and the professionals who help them.
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.
