Entering Marquette

As a student with a disability applying to Marquette, you may be wondering:  

  1. When applying, should you identify your disability?

    Students with disabilities who want to apply to Marquette must meet the same admissions criteria as all students seeking to enter the university. Should you identify yourself as a student with a disability on the Admissions application, it is unlawful for the university to deny you admission based upon disability factors alone. Any information you choose to provide Admissions about your disability will be forwarded to the Office of Disability Services (ODS), the area of the University that serves students with disabilities.

  2. Are there any special programs or resources for students with specific disabilities, i.e., LD, ADD, Deaf/Hard of Hearing?
    The Office of Disability Services (ODS) assists students with disabilities in obtaining assistance (accommodations) that give them equal access to Marquette's programs and services. ODS does not provide diagnostic treatment or learning support services specifically for students with disabilities.


Our Mission

Marquette University's Office of Disability Services is dedicated to providing equal access within the classroom setting, through the determination of appropriate accommodations, for students with documented disabilities. ODS promotes accessibility awareness through collaboration with campus partners, the development of student self-advocacy, and through consultation with the broader community. Guided by the university's mission, we strive to support the Marquette community in their efforts to educate all students on campus.
