How do I get an ESA?

PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID-19, ESA requests will not be processed until August 2020.

An ESA is an animal that provides comfort or emotional support to its owner who has a documented medical, physical or mental health-related disability that substantially limits the person's ability to participate in one or more major life function. An ESA is not required to have any specific training. ESAs are different than Service Dogs (SD). If you are pursing a SD on campus, please visit here.
