WHY IT MATTERS

According to the Digest of Education, 11% of undergraduates self-identified as having a disability.*

As student body numbers grow, so too will the request for accommodation services. uSked empowers student support services to remain nimble in response to the increasing number of requests.

Roughly 77% of degree-granting postsecondary institutions provided classroom notetakers.*

Whether it’s the student providing or receiving the notetaking service, uSked has an app that allows both to communicate with office staff regarding schedule, upload material, invoice, and provide feedback.

Nearly all two-year and four-year public institutions reported enrolling students with disabilities.*

Accommodations are nuanced and individual. uSked aims to enable disability support services to serve students well by making the experience easier and user-friendly for all involved.

DOES YOUR INSTITUTION HAVE THE RIGHT TOOLS?

Every semester disability departments spend countless hours working on behalf of students and alongside faculty to provide accommodations.

uSked works to shoulder the management of those logistics, freeing up administrators and staff to focus on students first.

The coordination of quality accommodation services is deeply personal to us. We know that serving students well includes managing the logistics in a way that honors the responsibilities of the office staff and the needs of the students.

uSked provides the “How” to your “Why”.
