Disability Services

The Student Success Center provides accessibility to students requiring accommodations through the provision of a wide variety of services tailored to each student’s documented needs. To qualify for services, students must provide appropriate documentation of a disability at the time services and/or accommodations are requested. Upon completion of the verification process, Center staff will forward a letter that lists the services and accommodations that are deemed reasonable.  The letter is distributed to you, relevant campus offices that provide services, the dean who oversees the division in which your courses are taken, and the professors who teach your courses.

Please take note of the following vital information:

  • It is your responsibility to contact the Student Success Center each semester, trimester, or minimester to request accommodations so that the accommodation forms can be forwarded to your professors.
  • Total time for processing the accommodation form after verification will be approximately 5-10 business days. Please be advised sufficient time is needed to distribute information to deans, professors, and relevant campus offices.
  • Files will be destroyed after 2 inactive semesters.

Prospective students and students requesting assistance for the first time are asked to refer to the "Disability Service Packet" attached below.
