Disability Services welcomes all requests for accommodations. However, please keep in mind that it is the student’s responsibility to make accommodation requests in advance of their need, as accommodations are not retroactive.
Please review the processes for Common Accommodations for Eligible students, as the amount of notice needed to implement an accommodation can vary. If you have questions about a specific accommodation, please contact Disability Services.
If it is determined that a student is eligible to receive services, appropriate accommodations will be determined by a Disability Services staff member in consultation with instructors and appropriate campus personnel, as needed. Possible accommodations include, but are not limited to:
- Determining appropriate scheduling and location of courses.
- Priority registration for those students whose accommodations necessitate these course arrangements.
- Alternative Text Requests
- Access to class notes.
- Alternative testing, which may include (but is not limited to) extended time on tests, distraction-reduced rooms, a reader, a scribe, large print, special lighting, use of a computer.
- Assistive Technology lab access.
- Reduced course load option.
- Technology adaptations.

Tutoring supports students in developing basic learning skills, while classes are offered to further extend the learning in key areas: computer skills, reading improvement, and study skills. Individual tutoring is available for English, writing, math, chemistry, biology, physics, and many other areas.
