According to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), colleges are required to provide accommodations to students with a documented disability.
If you have a disability and are requesting accommodations, please visit the Student Success Center (Room 204). We can offer a range of disability services based on your documentation to accommodate your needs.
Accommodations are awarded on a case by case basis depending on the documentation we receive. Listed below are possible accommodations you may receive, not required in every case.
If coming right from high school, our office needs a copy of your IEP (Individual Education Plan) before any services are rendered.
If you do not have an IEP, we will need an evaluation from either vocational rehabilitation services, a psychiatrist, or a physician before any services are rendered. Contact the Student Success Center for specific evaluation requirements.
The evaluation for ADD or ADHD must be within 3 years. The evaluation for a learning disability must be within 5 years. The evaluation for a psychiatric disorder must be within the past 6 months.
If your documentation is older, we will ask that you get reevaluated to best accommodate your needs.
