Parents & FamilyStarting college is a time of transition for students and their families. For many students this will be their first time living away from home and making their own life decisions. Although this is an exciting time, you may also experience concerns about your student. You and your student will also have to learn how to handle the differences between K-12 and post-secondary environments.

Disability Support Services (DSS) has resources to assist you and your student through this time of transition. Although we cannot guarantee that your student will succeed or have an easy transition to UAB, we can assure you DSS will work to provide your student with equal access to programs and services at the University of Alabama-Birmingham.

DSS can only provide accommodations for disability that are supported by documentation from a qualified profession. For information visit ourdocumentation guidelines.
