Center for Access and Accommodative Services
Service Animal Policy
According to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), service animals are animals “that have been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability including, but not limited to guiding individuals with impaired vision, alerting individuals with impaired hearing to intruders or sounds, providing minimal protection or rescue work, pulling a wheelchair, or fetching dropped items.”
According to the definition of the ADA the person must have a disability as defined by the ADA and the animal must be trained to do specific work and tasks for the person.
Students who have the need for a service animal on campus should first contact the Center for Access and Accommodative Services (CAAS) to register as a student needing services and submit documentation of their disability.
Students who establish services through CAAS will be required to attend a Services Training to learn about the policies and procedures of the services they wish to use.
