Service animals are allowed to remain with the handler at all times.
A service animal must be under the control of its handler at all times. Service animals whose behavior poses a direct threat to the health or safety of others may be excluded regardless of training or certification.
Any student with a disability who is planning extended use of a service animal on campus needs to register with Student Accessibility and Accommodation.
Emotional Support Animals
An emotional support animal alleviates symptoms of a mental or emotional disability, therefore allowing a student to function on campus. They go beyond the comfort that pets provide. Requests for an emotional support animal will be handled on a case by case basis. Please schedule an appointment with Peggy Perno for more information. 253.879.3399, firstname.lastname@example.org
Any student dissatisfied with a decision made concerning ESA requests should follow the applicable institutional grievance procedure, which is explained on the Office of Accessibility and Accommodations website.
