Steps to Follow

  • Step one: Contact EM Strasbourg’s disability advisor.
  • Step two: Make an appointment with the University’s Disability Services (Service de la vie universitaire - Mission handicap) where they will examine your request, evaluate your needs, in collaboration with disability advisors and program coordinators, and set up a support plan (PAEH).

If you have benefited from accommodations during your previous studies, such as a personalized study plan (PPS) or a personalized support plan (PAP), please bring the documents specifying the measures put in place.

  • Step three: Make an appointment with the SSU (University Health Service) or the CAMUS (the University of Strasbourg’s Medical and Psychological Consultation Center) for a visit with a licensed physician.

Please bring medical documents pertaining to your situation. Students with a dys-type disability must bring a speech and language assessment dated within a year of entering the University. The University’s Disability Services has a list of professionals and a recommendation sheet regarding assessment criteria that can be sent to you.
