Special Accommodations

We are committed to providing quality service and support to students with disabilities.  Our purpose is to remove barriers for students with disabilities to ensure equal access to educational opportunities and preparation to enter the workforce.
Academic Accommodations are determined on an individual basis for each student who applies for services.  A conversation about your experience and expectations will help identify the information necessary to support your accommodation request.

How to request accommodations

  1. Schedule an appointment.
  2. Complete the Request for Accommodation Form.
    Each Semester

    • At the appointment, we will review your educational history and learning techniques.
    • Please provide any documentation relevant to your disability and accommodation needs.
  3. Sign the Accommodation Notification Form and return it to the Accommodations Coordinator.

Transition to College

There are some significant and important distinctions in the accommodation process for college.  Unlike high school, college students need to self-disclose their disabilities.  Reasonable and necessary accommodations are based on individual needs.  Documentation can be presented to support any disability diagnoses.  Be aware that other universities and testing agencies may have additional requirements before reasonable accommodations will be approved. At the beginning of each semester, students will need to meet with the Accommodations Coordinator to arrange accommodations.
