Welcome

At the University of California, Irvine, providing equal opportunities for students with disabilities is a campus-wide responsibility and commitment. Disabilities include, but are not limited to, orthopedic, visual, hearing, learning, chronic health and psychological disabilities. UCI demonstrates its core values of individual growth and development and civility and diversity by recognizing students with disabilities as an important part of its student body.

Our mission is to empower students to reach their potential in every aspect of their lives by moving beyond success to significance through education, service, and support.

EMOTIONAL SUPPORT ANIMALThe Disability Services Center does not accept letters from the numerous online companies who (in exchange for a fee) purport to offer verification or certification of the need for an emotional support animal. To warrant approval of a request for an emotional support animal, a student should be prepared to submit appropriate medical documentation describing the functional limitations caused by the disability and the manner in which the support animal ameliorates these limitations.
