The Accessibility Office is the central location for maintaining information about your disability through written records and staff contact. This office assists students with physical, psychological, medical, and learning disabilities.
If you currently have a disability, the accessibility coordinator can assist you in making the most of your college career.
The accessibility coordinator advocates on behalf of students with disabilities. She maintains statistics on students with disabilities and advocates to the college administration for improved services, more adaptive equipment, accessible buildings, etc.
The coordinator also provides information to faculty and staff members regarding needs and the advantages of a team approach in serving students with disabilities.
Accessibility Handbook and Forms
The accessibility coordinator works with faculty to facilitate classroom and testing accommodations. Faculty members are encouraged to modify rather than waive specific requirements, so that all students, as much as possible, get the same academic experiences.
Interpreters, readers, and assisted technology are examples of aids some students with disabilities may need.
Recorded Textbooks and Other Alternative Formats
The accessibility coordinator can assist students who have vision, learning, or physical disabilities with ordering eText or alternative text books. It is important for students to register for classes at the earliest possible time and to contact faculty regarding reading assignments immediately after registering.
Relationship with Community Services
The accessibility coordinator maintains a close working relationship with community agencies regarding individual concerns.
