Requesting Services:

To receive services, students complete an intake appointment in the DSS office and provide documentation of disability.  Individualized academic adjustments will then be determined.  Please note some services may require 6 weeks or more to arrange.  Contact the DSS office as early as possible in your educational planning to avoid delays in service.

DSS also arranges accommodations (such as sign language interpreters) for College sponsored programs and events. One week notice is requested.

Authority and Confidentiality
