Ability Center for Exceptional Students (ACES)
The Ability Center for Exceptional Students (ACES) is located in Library 149. It is responsible for providing disability related services, and ensuring that appropriate accommodations for students are met in the academic and university environment.
In order for students to receive appropriate accommodations, they must voluntarily provide current documentation that verifies their disabling condition, as well as register and meet with the disability services coordinator. The types of accommodations vary depending upon the disability and are determined on a case-by-case basis.
If your child has a disabling condition (learning, mental or physical) or think they may have a disabling condition, please contact the ACES at 906-635-2355 or at 906-635-2454. For more information email: Vicki Fox, Disability Services Coordinator.
