Disability Support Services
Statement of Disability Support Services: Valparaiso University and its faculty have a legal responsibility to provide reasonable accommodation for students who have a diagnosed specific disability but are otherwise qualified for the course or degree program. Any modifications in the manner in which a course is conducted are restricted to changes in the format of instruction or evaluation. Such modifications must not change the academic standards or basic content of the course. Substitution of specific courses in a degree program or general education must not change the standards or basic educational goals of the degree.

Writing assistance at the graduate level for traditional, international, and online students.  Resources are also available for those needing to fulfill graduate admission requirements.  

INTERLINK offers intensive English preparation in grammar, reading, writing, listening and speaking for admissible students who have not met Valpo’s TOEFL requirements. The emphasis is on effective communication, and the goal is solid preparation for academic success. INTERLINK also offers special programs geared towards preparing students entering the Law and Business programs at VU.
