Students with Disabilities

We at the UW Career & Internship Center are committed to helping students with visible and non-visible disabilities find gainful and satisfying employment. To this end, we’ve compiled a list of resources for you, both on and off campus, which we hope will help with questions you may have about disclosure, accommodations and your legal rights. This list is by no means exhaustive. We’ve also provided some sites where you can expand  upon your search for a job or internship and learn more about finding support in the workplace. Finally, we encourage you to schedule a 30-minute appointment with one of our career coaches, which you can do on Handshake. We are here to assist you with every step of this process.
