Carlow University makes every reasonable effort to provide qualified applicants and students with disabilities with the opportunity to take full advantage of its programs, activities, services and facilities. The University’s Disabilities Services Office (DSO) does this in part by arranging specific reasonable and effective accommodations for students and prospective students through collaboration with students, faculty and staff. The DSO’s approach allows for a confidential and balanced review of documentation and a thoroughly researched plan for qualified students.


Carlow attempts to accommodate prospective students based on their individual needs, with proper documentation via the DSO.

Example include:

  • Convert documents to accommodate your needs
  • Enlarged print
  • Zoom text — screen reader software
  • Audio taped textbooks
  • Extended testing time
  • Separate testing booths
  • Dragon Naturally Speaking® software
  • Classroom relocation
