Who We Serve
- Any student with a documented disability who is registered for classes.
- We also work cooperatively with instructors to provide academic adjustments to reduce barriers in the classroom (face-to-face or virtual).
How We Can Help You
We are available to meet with students in person or via phone for a wide variety of needs:
- Organizational skills
- Working with faculty
- Self advocacy
- Specific disability-related concerns
Learning techniques & assistive technology (e.g., Kurzweil, Dragon Dictate)
We help students determine appropriate and reasonable adjustments/services for their classes. We can provide limited screening or testing referrals for students who are not sure if they have learning disabilities. This is all provided at no cost to you!
How to Access Disability Services
- Step 1: Contact our staff for an appointment (preferably before the start of classes).
- Step 2: Provide documentation to our office from a qualified professional. If you need assistance with this, please let us know.
- Step 3: Meet with Student Accessibility Services staff to develop a specialized plan (VISA form) that you will provide to your instructors regarding academic adjustments for their classes.
For more specific information and forms, please visit the Student Accessibility Services Website
What is "Documented" Disability
- Written verification from a medical or psychological specialist that is recent - meaning within the last 3-5 years.
- Documentation should clearly state both the disability and how it significantly impacts the student, especially in a learning environment.
- For more specific information on documentation, please refer to our website or contact a staff member.
