Service Dogs (SD)
Service Dogs, as defined by the Americans With Disabilities Act, are dogs "that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities."
"When it is not obvious what service an animal provides, only limited inquiries are allowed. Staff may ask two questions: (1) is the dog a service animal required because of a disability, and (2) what work or task has the dog been trained to perform."
(Americans With Disabilities Act)
While not required under ADA, The Office of Student Accessibility Services appreciates students letting us know of their Service Dog on campus. If you would like to do this, please visit this form.
