The Disability Support Services (DSS) office provides a variety of services for students with documented disabilities, including learning disabilities, visual, hearing and mobility impairments, psychological conditions, acquired brain injuries, and other medical disabilities. Services are provided in compliance with state and federal legislation.
In accordance with federal and state regulations, procedural language has been established to address the provision of educational accommodations to students with disabilities who are otherwise qualified to participate in the College’s courses, programs and activities.
The DSS office supports students in achieving their educational goals by providing services and accommodations in a timely and effective manner.
Students who have a verifiable disability qualify for support services through the DSS office. The services are designed to support students in the achievement of their academic and career vocational goals. Reasonable accommodations are determined by the DSS counselor/specialist on an individual basis. Services and accommodations are based on the educational abilities and functional limitations unique to each student.
