Disability Services

Michigan State University invests in students, faculty and staff with disabilities through the Resource Center for Persons with Disabilities (RCPD). In order to meet the needs of these individuals, RCPD has identified nine broad categories listed below to represent a spectrum of disabilities. It is important to Identify and Register a Disability to receive individual needs assessments, services and accommodations from RCPD. If you have service-related questions, take a moment to contact a staff member.

After documentation of a disability has been provided and a needs assessment is completed, reasonable accommodations are determined. RCPD will provide a verification letter that includes: (a) verification of disability and registration status with the RCPD (b) an outline of reasonable accommodations These items become a VISA for students, or a SEAD for employees.
