Disability Support Services

The disability services office at each college coordinates accommodations for students with permanent and temporary disabilities as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990.

Students who meet the guideline criteria are encouraged to establish accommodations through the disability services office at the college where their classes are being taken.


Accommodations eliminate barriers and insure equal access in order for students with disabilities to be as fully engaged in the educational experience as possible.

Disability services offers accommodations to help level the playing field and create opportunities for success for students with disabilities. Accommodations to students may include, but not limited to: peer volunteer note-taking, extended test time, alternative test-taking location, readers, scribes, Oral or ASL interpreter services, adaptive equipment, assistive technology, tape recorders for classroom use, alternate format reading material, and/or in-class accommodations.
