Accommodations must be requested prior to the date needed. While the college will try to honor all requests, accommodations must be requested in a reasonable amount of time for processing or the accommodation may not be ready on the date needed.
Follow the procedures below for classroom accommodations.
Classroom accommodations must be arranged with the faculty member in a reasonable amount of time to meet, discuss accommodations, and allow for implementation. If classroom accommodations are not requested in a reasonable amount of time to complete the process below, the faculty member may not be able to provide the accommodations at the time needed. Meeting with the faculty member within the first two weeks of classes is recommended if the need for accommodations is known at that time.
Note: Accommodations are not effective until you return the signed Accomodation Plan to Disability Services and meet with the course instructor to request the classroom accommodations needed from your Accommodation Access Plan. It is the students responsibility to ensure a signed copy of the Accommodation Plan is returned to Disability Services.
