Disability ServicesReferrals and University Resources
If you are interested in pursuing an evaluation for a learning disability, please contact Disability Services to set up an appointment for a consultation and/or referral. The office will help to identify a provider or evaluator who will best meet your needs. However, Disability Services does not pay for the evaluation process or for diagnostic testing.
Columbia's Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action (EOAA) has overall responsibility for the University’s Equal Opportunity and Nondiscrimination Policies on disability, and has been designated to coordinate compliance activities under these policies and the applicable federal, state and local laws. Students, faculty, and staff may contact the EOAA Office to inquire about their rights under the University’s policies on disability, request mediation or counseling, or seek information about filing a complaint. Information and advice are also offered to visitors and callers.
