The mission of Disability Services is to ensure accessibility for all students to University programs. The Department of Student Affairs Counseling and Wellness Program administers Disability Services at Texas A&M University at Qatar. Disability Services, with the assistance of Disability Services at Texas A&M University, offers accommodations counseling, evaluation referral, disability-related information, and adaptive technology counseling and equipment for academically related purposes. Although Disability Services does not offer disability evaluation and/or testing, tutoring, personal expenses, attendants or scholarships, we will provide referral information.
The University has the right to set and maintain standards for admitting students and evaluating their progress and is not obligated to waive any requirements fundamental or essential to the integrity of the program. Thus students with disabilities must meet the academic or technical standards for participation in a program, given appropriate accommodations. The counseling and wellness program coordinator and counselor, along with the support and guidance of Disability Services at Texas A&M University, disseminates information about available services, evaluate requests for services to determine eligibility and appropriate accommodations, and assist students in obtaining those accommodations. Once a student’s disabilities have been verified and accommodations are identified through Disability Services, he/she will receive a letter from Disability Services verifying his/her eligibility for particular accommodations which he/she can then share with relevant faculty or staff member to arrange the specific accommodation(s).
