Services are available to students (on-campus or online) with physical or learning disabilities in order to promote equal educational opportunities. Accommodations are modifications or adjustments that allow students with disabilities an equal opportunity to participate in and benefit from educational programs. Reasonable accommodations are provided on an individualized, as-needed basis. At the college level, students with disabilities must self-declare and provide recent and professional documentation regarding the disability, which should include how the disability affects the student’s academic performance, as well as suggested accommodations. The student must take the first step of self-advocacy by making sure they contact a disability advocate, preferably prior to the start of classes, to allow adequate time for accommodations to be set in place.
