Students requesting accommodations are encouraged to contact the Coordinator of Disability Services. Reasonable accommodations are based on the student’s documentation. The important thing to remember is that having accommodations does not alter the requirements of the class.
For documentation requirements, see Documentation
Classroom accommodations at the college level may differ from modifications that were available in high school. Accommodations may not alter an essential component of a course. Some common examples of accommodations that may be approved include:
- Extended time on tests or exams
- Testing in a separate room
- Note taking services
- Assistance in obtaining alternative format textbooks
- Advance copies of an instructor's notes/outlines
- A student who has disclosed a disability and has provided appropriate documentation will meet with the Coordinator of Disability Services at the beginning of each year and complete an Authorization for Release of Information waiver.
- The student will receive a purple Certification Card.
- The Coordinator of Disability Services will email each of the student's instructors of the approved accommodations for that student
