Student Accommodations

Qualified students with disabilities are eligible for academic accommodations through the Accessibility Services office.

Accommodations

Accommodations are modifications to policies and practices that are provided to qualified students with disabilities to ensure equitable access to course content and materials. While accommodations may change the way you access course information or demonstrate knowledge, accommodations do not change the essential elements of a course. Accessibility Services works with SCTCC Faculty and Staff to ensure that accommodations are correctly and promptly implemented.

Additionally, accommodations for students with disabilities are protected under federal disability legislature. This means that accommodations are not only a support or a service, but a federal right of the students registered with Accessibility Services.

Accommodation Plan

Accessibility Services works one-on-one with eligible students to create an individualized Accommodation Plan that meets their unique needs. Accommodations are not connected to diagnosis, but to the impact of the diagnosis. Students should come prepared to their initial meeting with Accessibility Services Staff with knowledge of their disability and how it impacts both them and their academics.  

Temporary Accommodations

Accessibility Services also supports students with temporary disabilities (for example: broken arm, Seasonal Affective Disorder, concussion, etc.) by providing temporary accommodations. If you have a temporary disability, please follow the same procedure outlined in the Getting Started. Temporary accommodations only last for one semester, so be mindful to check back in with Accessibility Services if your condition persists past that time frame to continue getting support. For renewing temporary accommodations, additional documentation may be needed.
