School of Professional Studies (SPS) Programs

Accommodations and Services for Students with Disabilities

 Brown University offers inclusive educational opportunities as well as reasonable accommodations and services to meet the needs of qualified students with disabilities. Student and Employee Accessibility Services (SEAS) is the designated office that administers requests related to disabilities for all School of Professional Studies (SPS) programs. All inquiries regarding disability related accommodations and services should be directed to SEAS. They can be contacted directly at 401-863-9588 or SEAS-SPS@brown.edu.

Upon acceptance into a program, students or campers should contact the SEAS office to indicate a need for academic, housing, dietary (significant food allergies or intolerances), and/or transportation accommodations and complete a Disability Accommodations or Services Request Form. Along with this form, students may need to submit documentation of their area of disability and needs. Please reference the SEAS guidelines for documenting a disability and contact SEAS if you have any questions or concerns: SEAS-SPS@brown.edu or 401-863-9588. 

Brown also has an accessibility map that describes routes of travel, accessible parking, and the general accessibility level of all campus buildings. Some residence halls require stairs and none of them are air-conditioned. Please contact SEAS well in advance if these are areas of concern.

Please note that Pre-College Programs, with the exception of the Pre-Baccalaureate Program, do not involve test-taking, timed completion of assignments or projects for which students are evaluated. Therefore, documentation related to accommodations for these instances is not needed.

Students and campers should request accommodations with as much notice as possible to ensure accommodations can be arranged.
