Student Disability Services is more than accommodations.

Texas Tech University has one of the most comprehensive departments for students with disabilities in the state, where the Student Disability Services (SDS) staff provides a variety of accommodations and services for individuals with disabilities. Accommodations will be made in response to the specific disability.

With over 1,500 students registered for services, we encourage students to overcome challenges and attain personal and academic success while the SDS staff functions as a student advocate. Through active involvement with all areas of the University, SDS is able to monitor conditions relevant to students with disabilities and offer support in decisions affecting their quality of life.

In addition to the services offered by our main Student Disability Services office, SDS also offers a supplemental academic enhancement program for students with Learning Disabilities and Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorders, the TECHniques Center. The TECHniques Center is a fee-for-service program that provides one-on-one, regularly scheduled content and study skills tutoring, as well as weekly meetings with an academic counselor.

Mission

Student Disability Services promotes each student's learning experience by providing programs and services for students with disabilities and education of the campus community on issues related to students' disabilities.

Vision

The Department of Student Disability Services will become nationally recognized as the leader in enhancing student learning and development for students with disabilities through the provision of direct academic services such as classroom accommodations, tutoring, training, academic counseling, and ongoing campus training and education.

Because we know the transition from active duty to a college classroom can be challenging, SDS would like to make this transition as smooth as possible.

Resources to accommodate a disability can open up educational opportunities. You may contact the SDS staff liaison for further information or contact the Military & Veterans Programs office at Texas Tech directly.
