The decision to self-disclose a disability during the admission process is a student’s personal choice. All students admitted to Howard University are considered for acceptance based on criteria of GPA, SAT/ACT scores, ranking in class etc.
Howard University does not have a separate admissions process or criteria for students with disabilities. If you have been denied admission and feel that your documentation of disability could shed light on your academic record then we encourage you to consider self-disclosure.
If prior to applying, you know that you do not meet the standard admissions criteria, and you feel that your disability documentation provides important academic information, then consider speaking directly with an admissions counselor about your disability.
