Grand Canyon University (GCU) welcomes all students, faculty and staff with disabilities. Student Disability Services ensures all students have equal access to systems, programs and facilities. Our adherence to state, federal and local laws exemplifies our determination to be inclusive of all members of the GCU community.

Student Disability Services is the designated department for accommodation requests, as guided by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act and GCU policy. Members of our team evaluate disability documentation, determine eligibility and implement reasonable accommodations for enrolled students. If GCU is unable to meet your request(s), our office oversees GCU's formal grievance process and works with you to implement feasible solutions.
