You Have the Ability

If you have a disability, or believe that you may have a disability, you are not alone. More than 350 students at the College of Saint Benedict/Saint John’s University are registered with our office. These individuals arrive with a variety of conditions, including learning disabilities, mental health conditions, physical disabilities, mobility impairments and chronic diseases.

CSB/SJU are committed to providing equal access to facilities, services and learning opportunities. Student Accessibility Services welcomes students by acknowledging their many strengths, all of which contribute to the richness of our diverse community. Any student with a documented disability, or suspects they may have a disability, is encouraged to contact Student Accessibility Services to discuss possible accommodations and/or additional auxiliary aids and services
