Obtaining Services

The process for obtaining accommodations from the Disability Services office includes two key steps: 1) sharing current documentation of your disability with the college, and 2) meeting with a Disability Services specialist to create the best academic and support plan for your needs. This meeting may be completed by phone or video conferencing for online students.
