A comfortable place for students with disabilities.
We help students blend what they know about themselves with appropriate accommodations to reduce barriers to learning. We try to "level the playing field" so all students have an equal opportunity for a successful education.
The college has a long history of serving students with a wide variety of disabilities, working to ensure each student has the reasonable accommodations and services they need to enjoy academic success.
Our staff in the Disabilities Support program brings years of experience and considerable skill to the table. Students will find that we work hand-in-hand with instructors and other staff across campus to make sure reasonable and appropriate accommodations are made for all persons with disabilities. The Accommodations Specialist offers assistance to students who are blind or visually impaired, cognitively delayed, intellectually disabled, deaf or hard of hearing, emotionally disabled, learning disabled, autism spectrum disorder, orthopedically impaired and/or have communication disorders or other health impairments.
Stop By for a Talk
Aren't sure if you have a disability or even how a disability is defined? Stop by and we'll talk. We have a broad base of knowledge and resources to handle just about any question or situation faced by students with disabilities. Even if you don't have a disability, we'd be happy to answer your questions. It's important to note that all conversations are strictly confidential.
