Accessibility Services

Accessibility Services provides academic accommodations to qualified students with disabilities. Our counselors determine accommodations on an individual basis after reviewing current professional documentation and meeting with the individual. We inform and collaborate with faculty and staff to ensure successful implementation of accommodations and to increase the level of access and inclusion of all individuals on campus. The College Link Program is designed “to help students who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder to transition and succeed in the higher education environment.” We help students to develop their individual strengths to assist their academic and social success. The Assistive Technology Services Office (ATSO) provides students with disabilities the technological resources necessary to access instructional content. Visit the web site to learn more about how to apply for Accessibility Services.
