What We Do

Welcome! Disability Services is responsible for coordinating reasonable accommodations for students.  To receive accommodations, students must complete the steps below.

Steps To Request Accommodations

  1. Students must read the entire Disability Services Handbook.
  2. Complete and submit pages 17-19 of the handbook to Disability Services.
  3. Submit appropriate documentation of your disability to Disability Services.
  4. Schedule an appointment with a counselor. This fourth step must be done each semester before classes begin.

Reasonable Accommodations

Disability Services is responsible for coordinating reasonable accommodations for students in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the American Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 (as amended in 2008). Any student who has a disability that would like to request reasonable accommodations must contact Counseling and Disability Services, submit Self-Disclosure/Information Forms, and provide appropriate documentation of the disability from a qualified professional. Participation in disability services is on a voluntary basis, and accommodations are coordinated on a case-by-case basis through the Counseling and Disability Services staff.

In general, a reasonable accommodation is a change or alteration in the educational environment or in the way things are customarily done that enables a qualified student with a disability to enjoy equal access.  However, accommodations do not guarantee success.  A reasonable accommodation must not fundamentally alter the program, service, activity, or academic requirements. Students receiving accommodations must meet all admissions, academic, clinical, and program requirements, and will be expected to show competency in the course material/skills. Please note that personal assistant services are not considered reasonable and are not provided by the college. Accommodations are not retroactive, and they do not roll from semester to semester. Students are required to schedule an appointment for accommodations with a Counselor each semester before classes begin.
