Office of Student Accessibility Services

Federal law defines a disability as a “substantial limitation in one or more major life activities.” (ADAAA, 2008). The Office of Student Accessibility Services (OSAS) is the unit at USC responsible for ensuring equal access for students with disabilities in compliance with state and federal law. The OSAS team is committed to serving the USC community through: ensuring equal access, removing disability-related obstacles, supporting civil rights, and increasing education and awareness on behalf of students with disabilities.

OSAS engages in an interactive review process to determine appropriate accommodations for each student, factoring in the student’s request, the nature of the student’s disability, functional limitations of the disability, the supporting documentation, and the fundamental requirements of courses, programs of study, and the University. OSAS is part of the Division of Student Affairs, and while we are a separate department from other support, advocacy and counseling departments, we work closely with these and other resources on campus to best support student needs.

Please contact OSAS by visiting in GFS 120, calling (213) 740-0776, emailing sasfrntd@usc.edu or reviewing the website for more information (osas.usc.edu).
