Disability Services for Students Info Card


Student service fees support the services provided. In some cases, there are small fees charged for some testing.


Throughout the semester Disability Services for students provides many formal and informal activities to provide the TAMIU community with information to enhance academic and professional performance. Watch newspapers, bulletin boards, the Internet, etc. for important information and announcements. Our staff is available to provide guest lecture presentations for faculty and in-service training as requested by University departments and student organizations.
