If there are questions concerning these guidelines, you may contact The Office of Accessibility Services or The Office of Residence Life.

To apply for an Emotional Support Animal, students will need to complete all of the following forms. An ESA is not permitted on campus until officially approved by Accessibility Services. 

Note: Established Accessibility Services and Residence Life housing procedures and deadlines are still relevant to students who keep assistance animals in their University residence. This includes, but is not limited to the availability of rooms, room assignments, and fees.

As stated in the Emotional Support Animal Owner Agreement, Shepherd University may revoke the student’s right to have an ESA on campus if there any violations of the Owner Agreement.
