Current and appropriate documentation of a disability must be provided to the Access Office and must show how the disability substantially limits one or more major life activities. Once documentation is reviewed and an initial meeting is completed, accommodations can be approved by the Access Coordinator. All disability-related information remains private and separate from a student's academic record.
Please click this Documentation Guidelines link for more information regarding appropriate documentation.
It is the student's responsibility to self-identify, provide current and appropriate documentation of his or her disability, and to request accommodations from the Access Office. If a student chooses not to disclose his or her disability to the Access Office, the student is not covered under Section 504 and the ADA. The student will also be unable to receive academic accommodations or support services.
Students should take the following steps to ensure appropriate accommodations are in place before the semester begins.
1. Contact the Access Office for an appointment.
2. Submit appropriate documentation of disability to the Access Office.
3. Meet with advisor and register for classes.
4. Provide the Access Office with your class schedule each semester to obtain your accommodation forms for courses.
If accommodations will be needed for the Accuplacer, the student will need to meet with the Access Coordinator prior to registering for the test.
