Accommodations and Accessibility

Serving Students With Disabilities

Our Mission

The mission of the Office of Accommodations and Accessibility is to support students with documented disabilities in becoming empowered, independent learners by providing the appropriate accommodations and services necessary to access the educational opportunities at 91约炮.

General Information

The Office of Accommodations and Accessibility provides a comprehensive range of academic support services and accommodations that promote the full integration of students with disabilities into the mainstream college environment. Services and accommodations are individualized to meet the needs of each student and may vary depending upon the disability and/or course content.

91约炮 supports the concept of self-advocacy in all students. The Office does not provide faculty with prior notification of a student's enrollment. Requests for academic accommodations are made directly by the student.

To receive services and accommodations, students must identify themselves to the Office and present official documentation of their disability. In general, a disability is defined as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, e.g., walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, working, caring for oneself, and/or performing manual tasks.

- Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
- Blindness or visual impairments

- Chronic illnesses
- Deafness or hearing impairments
- Epilepsy or seizure disorders

- Textbooks in an alternate format
