Office of Student Disability Services

The Office of Student Disability Services empowers students to manage challenges and limitations imposed by disabilities. Our professionally trained staff provides students with exceptional services as they transition to college or continue their studies at the University.  The office serves students with learning, physical, health, or psychiatric disabilities in managing the varying demands of the University experience.  In addition to serving students, the staff assists the University community in making programs, services, and activities accessible for everyone.

For registered students, visit the Registered Students page for service forms and additional information.

For prospective students with a documented disability, you should start the registration process as soon as you are admitted to the University.  Please visit the Prospective Students page for more information.

Student Registration process


Fall Payment Deadline Change – No later than August 13, 5:00 pm

There's been a change to the Fall Semester Registration Calendar. The Fall Fee Payment deadline is Wednesday, August 13 at 5:00pm. Students must pay their tuition and fees by this new, earlier deadline to avoid cancellation of their fall classes. The fall payment deadline is now earlier than in prior years in order to more effectively manage registration and fee payment and align with best practices.

Bills will be available for students to view via Self Service Carolina (SSC) on July 17. Students are encouraged to pay their bills on-line using E-check or credit card. Students may take advantage of the payment plan option by selecting it within Self Service Carolina. There is an additional administrative fee associated with this option. Mail-in payments must be received by August 1. Students canceled for non-payment on August 13 may attempt to re-register throughout the remainder of fall registration and the drop/add period.

Reminders about the deadline have been emailed to currently registered Columbia students. The deadline is highlighted during new student orientation, and the date is prominently noted on the Bursar, Registrar, and Financial Aid offices’ websites. USC departments are encouraged to complete and submit any financial aid and scholarship, as well as graduate assistant tuition stipend or supplement paperwork as soon as possible to the appropriate office for timely processing.

For more information, please read this letter from the Bursar's Office.
