Who should contact Student Disability Services?
Students who had accommodations in high school and students who suspect they have a disability and would like to see if they are eligible for accommodations should contact the SDS office.
What is considered a disability?
A disability is an impairment that substantially impacts your functioning at college. Areas of disabilities include, but are not limited to, chronic medical conditions, learning disabilities, psychological disorders, visual and hearing impairments, Autism Spectrum disorders, ADHD, brain injuries and mobility impairments.
Will my IEP or 504 Plan be sufficient documentation?
To determine the most effective accommodations, a current psychological or medical evaluation is usually required. SDS will assist you in arranging for an evaluation if one is needed.
Will my accommodations be recorded on my transcript?
Information pertaining to a disability is confidential and will NOT be shared without prior written permission from the student. Neither disability nor the use of accommodations is noted on the student's transcript.
