Disability Services provides events that are open to the community, including awareness building opportunities as well as technology training sessions.
Students seeking auxiliary aids and services on the basis of documented disability should follow the steps outlined below.
Getting Started with Accommodations
For credit seeking students, there are three pieces that need to be in place to get the accommodation process started.
- Complete the Get Started form
- Attend a Disability Services Information session
- Provide current disability related documentation
For students who are taking non-credit community education courses, the process is briefer, choose either:
After getting the process started you will Meet with DS for a confidential initial appointment where you and the counselor or specialists will discuss appropriate accommodations based on your disability.
Putting Accommodation in Place each Term
Once you have your eligibility set for the accommodations you need, you will be able to login to our secure Accommodation Management System to request the Services and Accommodations you need in the courses you are registered for. There will be agreement forms with specific information about your rights and responsibilities.
After you make requests through the online system, the "Approved Academic Accommodations" form is generated, and can be printed out or emailed to each instructor.
In addition to providing the notification, you will also need to communicate with each instructor. Disability Services can help with any questions or concerns that arise. You might also want to Review our "Tips for Success" page which includes study skills and test taking strategies to help you be a successful student.
Advocating for disability to be understood as part of diversity
We also work with staff and faculty across the district to help ensure disability is understood as an aspect of diversity and all students are afforded an equal opportunity to engage in the educational experience.
Options for Everyone
Our Events page shows the lineup of tech trainings and awareness building events that are open to anyone and everyone!
Check out the new Access Maps for buildings across the college, borrow a device from the library, or start using Read and Write Gold. These are things any student can do, regardless of disability status.
