Disability Support

Disability Support Services (DSS) are offered on each campus to students with disabilities enrolled in credit and/or Continuing Education programs. Services are provided to any student who is disabled as defined in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

It is imperative that students adhere to the following policies and procedures to ensure that necessary accommodations are available before classes begin. Students interested in disabilities support at no personal charge must:

  1. Submit a request for accommodation to DSS. (PDFs will open in a new window.)
  2. Submit required documentation.

To see if you are eligible for accommodation services, see our Guidelines for General Eligibility for Disability Support Services. (PDF will open in a new window.)

In accordance with FERPA, disability related information may be shared on a "need to know" basis within the academic community.

The College does not provide personal attendants, individually prescribed devices, readers for personal use or study or other devices or services of a personal nature such as tutoring and typing.
