Application of Accommodations


Who is eligible to receive services through Disability Services?

Students who have a documented disability and provide documentation of the disability that impacts their academic performance may be eligible.

Students are responsible for self-disclosing their disability to DS and for providing documentation in order to determine eligibility. The contact must be by the student and not a representative of the student.

Eligible students must also meet the academic and technical standards required for admission to college programs or activities.  
We serve students with a wide variety of visible and invisible disabilities including but not limited to:

  • Migraines
  • Seizures
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Dyslexia/Dysgraphia
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Hearing Loss
  • Diabetes and other medical conditions

What types of accommodations are available?

Accommodations are modifications in how students participate in classes and activities. These modifications allow students to meet standards, but do not change them. Academic adjustments give students equal access to the educational opportunities.

Accommodations are individualized for each student and may include:

  • Sign Language interpreters
  • Books in Braille or electronic format
  • Furniture and equipment
  • Adaptive software
  • Notetakers

Students are encouraged to review the DS Student Handbook which offers an in depth discussion of our services and processes.
