Disabled Student Resources
Individuals with disabilities often face unique challenges when entering the workforce. It is important for students and alumni with disabilities to understand their rights in compliance with The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). It is also important to know that you are not required to disclose your disability to an employer, especially when it does not require special accommodations during the interview process.
If your disability causes substantial problems in preparing for, obtaining, or maintaining a career and you want to work consider getting in touch with your local Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR).
Resources for Individuals with Disabilities
- Disability.gov connects the disabled community with information and opportunities.
- Disability Resources from the U.S. Department of Labor.
- The National Organization on Disabilities is dedicated to getting the disabled in the workforce.

Networking is the most powerful part of any job search and successful career. Learn how to be your own advocate and know who to turn to if you feel you are being discriminated against because of your disability. If you are being discriminated contact your local Protection and Advocacy Agency. You can also reach out to local Self Advocacy Groups.
