Information/Resources for Students

You Have the Ability

If you have a disability, or are concerned that you may have a disability, you are not alone. Approximately 200 students at the College of Saint Benedict/Saint John's University have registered with our office. These individuals arrive with a variety of conditions, including learning disabilities, physical disabilities, mobility impairments and chronic diseases. They have utilized accommodations as a means to demonstrate their individual skills and talents in both the classroom and in community activities. CSB/SJU are committed to providing appropriate access to facilities and learning opportunities. We believe all students have the ability to succeed; disabilities need not become a barrier to academic success. Our faculty and staff work carefully to ensure that students have the resources necessary to meet their goals.

Any student witha documented disability (or suspects they may have a disability) is encouraged to contact Student Accessibility Services (320-363-5245 or [email protected]) to discuss possible accommodations or environmental modifications.
