Why should I register with SSD?
It is recommended that all students with disabilities provide documentation to SSD, even if they do not choose to request any services.
Providing documentation enables SSD staff to act more efficiently and knowledgeably on students' behalf, should the need arise and should students request this.
How do I start receiving services?
A good starting point is to contact the SSD Office at 312-369-8296.
Students must provide documentation to the SSD Office and request services in order to start receiving them.
