University of Idaho scores higher than its peers on many of our metrics, and this is reflected in the comments we received from students at U of I. One students tells us, "I have Crohn’s disease, arthritis, asthma, and ADHD/anxiety. So far, U of I’s been alright. It can be better in places, but every multi-level building has an elevator and a ramp for access by wheelchair or cane and I’ve been accepted by those around me." Another student tells us, "They're slowly improving how accessible they are," though digital accessibility can be improved. In addition, the campus' hilly terrain might be difficult for disabled students to navigate. "I do believe they offer some mobility vans, however," another student says.
Wait times for appointments at the Counseling & Testing Center (CTC) can be several months for ADHD testing, and several weeks for psychological counseling. One student told us that at the start of the fall semester in 2021, CTC was not taking in any new patients.
The Raven Scholars Program, "an individualized, supported-transition program for University of Idaho students on the Autism Spectrum," was also recommended. "They do not require formal diagnosis, just that you self-identify as having ASD."
