DISABILITY SUPPORT SERVICES

The staff of Disability Support Services can assist students in obtaining the following services:

Individual academic advising:
# Classroom accommodations.
# Support personnel (interpreters, readers, writers, and notetakers)
# Assistive technology
# Alternate format textbooks
# Referrals to and liaison with campus and community resources
# Referrals for LD/ADHD diagnosis

To qualify for services, students must self-identify to the DSS office and provide written documentation of their disability from a qualified professional or agency. This documentation should be done at least six weeks prior to the beginning of each semester so that Accommodations can be in place when classes begin.

Approved accommodations are based on the written documentation received by the DSS office. Students who need classroom accommodations must register each semester with the DSS office. Instructor Notification Memos, which describe the student's needed classroom accommodations, will be developed with the student's written permission. It is the student's responsibility to pick up and deliver the instructor memos. All accommodation should be discussed with each instructor.
