About Us

Even before it was law…

Ramapo College of New Jersey demonstrated a strong commitment to providing equal access to all students through the removal of architectural and attitudinal barriers.

Integration of qualified students with disabilities into the college community has been the Ramapo way since the College opened in 1971.

Guided by that mission, the College established the Office of Specialized Services (OSS) to facilitate equal access and to offer optional academic support for students with documented physical, sensory, learning, or psychological disabilities. The office has also been partially funded by federal and state grants and has been the recipient of numerous corporate and private contributions for special projects.

In a 2019 article, College Magazine recognized Ramapo College of New Jersey as one of the “10 Best Campuses for Students with Physical Disabilities”. Ramapo College has also been designated as “One of the Best Small Colleges in the Nation – and the Only New Jersey Institution – for Students on the Autism Spectrum” by AppliedBehaviorAnalysisPrograms.com.
