Prospective Students with Disabilities

During the Admission Process:

  • Admission Advisor. This professional staff member of the Admission Office is your contact during the admission process. Generally the Admission Advisor is determined by regions or schools of the applicant. If you identify a disability in your essay, your application will be assigned to the particular Admission Advisor in Admission who has training and experience with disability issues.
  • Students may, but are not required to, submit documentation of disability by mail to the Admission Office. Please contact the Admission Office at 401-874-7100 for more information.
  • Foreign Language Admission Requirement. If the applicant’s foreign language requirement was waived by the high school as part of an IEP or as a disability related accommodation, URI may, on a case-by-case basis waive this requirement. Current Documentation of Disability is required to substantiate this waiver. Please see Documentation Guidelines.

Visiting Campus? Individual meetings at Disability Services for Students: Although we are separate from the admission decision process, we are happy to meet with prospective students who would like to review potential services and accommodations for admitted students. If you are taking a campus tour, please call ahead for an appointment with a Disability Services Advisor. We welcome your visit.  Our phone is 401-874-2098 or e-mail at dss@etal.uri.edu.
