Disabilities Support Services         
DSS provides services to students who are enrolled at the University of Washington Bothell. Academic accommodations, if reasonable and appropriate, are provided to students who have a documented permanent or temporary physical, emotional, or sensory disability. (A student must provide documentation of their disability in order to receive services.) Please call DSS to find out the specific documentation requirements necessary for the diagnosis of your disability. There is no minimal or baseline disability that one must have to receive services. If you have a disability that affects you academically, you may be eligible for services.

Financial Aid                                
Financial aid is awarded in a variety of different ways, such as grants, loans, scholarships or work study jobs. To receive any kind of financial aid, one must first apply (see FAFSA online). After the application process is complete, students will receive an award letter indicating the financial assistance they qualify for. Follow each step carefully and give yourself plenty of time to complete the process. If there will be any changes in your enrollment plan, it may affect your financial aid, so in that case please contact the Financial Aid as soon as possible.

Career Center                               
Whether you’re just exploring career options or know exactly what you want to do, the Career Center has something for you. Still puzzled about your academic and career tracks? Choosing between grad school or a job? We can help you find a match for your interests, skills, and values.   

Veterans Services                        
Veterans Services provides assistance to students who are entitled to receive educational benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Whether a student is a new applicant for benefits or has used them at previous institutions, Veterans Services is committed to working in partnership to ensure that the process is simple and well-organized.
