Students with documented disabilities must self-identify to the SDS office and make a formal request for services in order to begin the intake process and identify appropriate accommodations.

Students with documented disabilities who may qualify for Student Disability Services are encouraged to begin the process as soon as possible by self-identifying in order to have reasonable accommodations provided. Reasonable accommodations are made in context with the goals and essential standards of the college program, course, etc., to which the student is requesting access.
