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.

The Johnson Scholarship, funded by the Johnson Scholarship Foundation, is a competitively awarded program which is available to undergraduate students with disabilities enrolled in a State University System of Florida (SUS) institution. Students must meet the following requirements to be considered for scholarship selection:
Be a Florida resident for tuition purposes, based on Section 1009.21, Florida Statutes. (Students who receive the out-of-state fee waiver are not eligible as they are not residents for tuition purposes);
• Be seeking a first baccalaureate degree;
• Complete a Theodore R. and Vivian M. Johnson Scholarship Application;
• Meet academic requirements;
• Provide documentation of the nature and/or extent of a disability; and
• Submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Renewal FAFSA form by the required deadline and be determined to have unmet fiscal need. Students may submit a FAFSA at: https://fafsa.ed.gov/
Be sure that the Federal School Code for your university is designated so that the university has access to your results.

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.
