Accommodations arranged through the office of Student Disability Services are intended to provide flexibility and equalize opportunities for success for students with disabilities. All students with a disability who would like to receive special services must provide appropriate documentation. When academic modifications are required, it is the student's responsibility to present the updated accommodation form to each of his/her professors at the beginning of the semester.

Students with a documented disability are encouraged to register with the SDS at least three weeks before the beginning of the semester in order to obtain accommodations and support services.

All information related to a student's disability is kept confidential and may be accessed only by the SDS staff. Students may sign a Release of Information Authorization Form so that the SDS may work with students by working with faculty, tutors, and any other individuals for the benefit of the student.

The College assures that discrimination (or the potential for discrimination) on the basis of disability does not exist related to student programs, activities, and services, including those related to academic programs, research, occupational training, admissions, counseling, financial aid, and extracurricular activities.
