What is the purpose of the Center?
The ADA & Disabilities Resource Center works to ensure that students with disabilities have equal opportunity to pursue a higher education.
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 provide the laws under which the Center functions.
The ADA Center strives to provide qualified individuals with equal access to educational, recreational and social activities at ISU. We refer students, faculty and staff to appropriate on and off campus agencies and organizations to supplement Center services.
Who may access the ADA Center?
ISU students, faculty and staff who have a disability, have a record of a disability, or are perceived as having a disability that substantially limits one or more major life activities, may apply for services at the Center.
Persons who are blind, deaf, have mobility impairments or diseases such as diabetes, asthma or cystic fibrosis may receive services. Accommodations are also provided for individuals with learning disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, and psychological disabilities, among others. Information regarding the nature of an individual's disability is held in strict confidence.

What kind of documentation is required?

Documentation should be in the form of medical records &/or psychological test reports, and include diagnosis, prognosis, and recommended accommodations. Notes on Prescription pads are not acceptable.

When is the best time to apply for services?

Qualified individuals are encouraged to contact the Center prior to or upon enrollment at ISU. It is our responsibility to make every effort to accommodate your needs. If you encounter structural or attitudinal challenges, please contact the Center.
The Veterans Sanctuary works with mental health clinics and offices in the Greater Pocatello area to ensure that our student veterans have access to the services that best meet their needs. Some of our partners include:
ISU Counseling & Testing Service: The counseling staff of the University Counseling & Testing Service are available free of charge to assist students who are encountering personal, social and emotional difficulties while enrolled in at least one credit at Idaho State University.
If interested in counseling, students can stop by the University Counseling & Testing Service at Graveley Hall South, room 351, to fill out initial paperwork and make appointment for an assessment, given our availability. We also have a second location at the ISU Idaho Falls Campus on Science Center Drive in the Bennion Student Union Building, room 223.
During times of high demand for counseling services and limited availability of staff, students who are not currently at high risk will be placed on a wait list and contacted as soon as there is an opening. Students placed on the wait list will also be provided with referrals for other low cost/no cost counseling services in the community.
During the assessment, students and their assessment counselor discuss the student's needs and concerns and decide upon an appropriate plan which might include individual, couples and/or group therapy. When a student's needs are different from the services provided at our office, the counselor will assist the student with a referral.
