HE Support Checker

Please note: From Friday 31 March 2023 AbilityNet will no longer maintain or update our Higher Education (HE) Support Checker. This following our withdrawal from offering Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA) assessment bookings.

Claim It! #ClaimItDSA logoMany higher education students are eligible for but not receiving the extra support they need and that is available to them, including extra help from their university and Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA) that will enable them to succeed in higher education.

We encourage students to use our free HE Support Checker to find out if they could be eligible for extra support at university due to a health condition or impairment. The check is entirely anonymous and you do not need to give us any personal information.
