Americans with Disabilities Act
How Do I Request Accommodations?
The following link lists the ADA Coordinator for your particular college. This Coordinator is the contact person who along with the ADA 504 Student Coordinator will assist you in requesting and granting special accommodations via the ADA as a student with a disability.
The process of review depends in part on the nature of your disability. A determination of eligibility will be made by the College Coordinator and the 504 ADA Student Coordinator. They may (if necessary) confer with outside professionals including, but not necessarily your instructor. If you are found to be eligible for services, they will decide which, if any, of your requests will be granted. Decisions regarding accommodations are made on a case-by case basis. There is no standard accommodation for any particular disability.
Each category of need has its own documentation standards and, in some cases, forms.
If you are approved for accommodations in the middle of the semester, you are strongly encouraged to pick up the LOA as soon as it is ready and immediately deliver it to relevant faculty members.
If you have been approved for accommodations, you must request an LOA from your College Coordinator each semester that you wish to receive accommodations.
If your requested accommodations are not approved, you are encouraged to meet with your College Coordinator and or the 504 ADA Student Coordinator to discuss the reasons for the denial. The Coordinator's may discuss further documentation that is required for review or may review the grievance procedure (pdf) with you at this time.
