New Student Procedure To Acccess Disability Accommodations
Disability Services – Summary Information
The mission of Disability Services is to assist students in accessing appropriate accommodations in order to fully integrate into a mainstream collegiate environment. The department receives and reviews documentation and assists students in developing accommodation forms for their faculty. The accommodation form is a written notice of the accommodations each student may receive to equally access their education at the College. These requests must be completed each and every semester with a counselor.
A faculty member is not required to provide any accommodations unless notified through an official Accommodation Form developed by the DSS/Project Connections professional staff. Faculty may verify the request by contacting the professional staff person indicated on the form. Accommodations shall not compromise the content of the course or the essential requirements of the degree.
The College makes every effort to accommodate a student with a disability. However, the student must meet all the academic requirements of his/her program. Accommodation is not a guarantee of success. Students have the right to file a grievance if they feel they have been discriminated against due to disability.
