Special Support Services


Purpose

Special Support Services provides prospective students and their families, enrolled students and their families, and employees with information regarding disability issues.

Special Support Services works with students and employees with disabilities on getting appropriate accommodations during their enrollment or employment at the College. Disability types include learning disabilities, impaired mobility, attention deficit disorder, psychological difficulties, and hearing and vision impairments. Accommodations for students and employees with disabilities are individually determined. Medical or psychological documentation must be provided when requesting accommodations. Furthermore, students and employees must sign a disclosure form, which notifies the College of an existing disability or impairment. Click here for the Disclosure of Disability form
