The rehabilitation services program trains graduates to work in human service agencies that serve people who have disabilities, are homeless, are involved in the court system, use assistive technology, and in a variety of other circumstances. Some common entry points are in case management, employment services, assistive technologies, court systems, and social services. The program also prepares students for graduate study in rehabilitation counseling or related fields. Curriculum flexibility attracts students who are interested in developing a program to reflect their special interests.

Rehabilitation services is one of the first undergraduate programs in the nation to be accredited by the Council on Rehabilitation Education (April 2012). Therefore, students can be assured that their curriculum and faculty are diligently and annually reviewed to maintain high standards throughout their educational experience to prepare them for their professional career path.
