Who is eligible for services?

It is the student's responsibility to self-disclose as a student with a disability and to request accommodations through Student Disability Services.   The disability may be physical, psychological or medical in nature.  Examples of disabilities include, but are not limited to, learning disabilities, physical disabilities, chronic illnesses, head and spinal cord injuries, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADD/ADHD), psychological disabilities, visual impairments, and hearing impairments.

 

Documentation

Students are responsible for supplying the appropriate documentation to Student Disability Services. A letter or medical records from a professional (doctor/ psychiatrist/psychologist) stating the student’s disability, functional limitations of the disability and types of accommodations needed is required. Students coming from high school can submit their IEP along with the Psycho-Educational Evaluation.  Any questions about documentation should be discussed with the counselor for Student Disability Services.

Once documentation is received the student and counselor meet to discuss reasonable accommodations needed in the classroom or testing environment to help students meet their academic goals. The accommodation process is a collaborative process to understand the student's disability and how the disability may impact the student's educational experience in order to determine reasonable accommodations.  Please note that some accommodations may take up to 2 weeks before being available to students. 

 

Pre-Enrollment Accommodations

Students must contact Student Disability Services to request accommodations on the College Placement Test.

 

Outreach

Consultation and in-service training concerning reasonable accommodations, rights of people with disabilities, sensitivity and awareness, and federal and state laws such as Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 are provided if requested.

 

Disability Forms

 

Notice of Non Discrimination
