Typical Accommodations

In order to receive accommodations, students with disabilities must contact the Director of Counseling and Disabilities Services and provide sufficient documentation of the disability.  Information on the types of documentation necessary for differing disabilities and the necessary forms may be found on our webpage or in the office.  All accommodations are provided based on a review of a student’s particular needs at the beginning of each semester.  This list is not intended to be all inclusive, nor is it a guarantee of which accommodations a student will receive.  The deadline to apply for accommodations each semester is the last day to drop a class on the academic calendar.
