Who can register?
Students who have a permanent or temporary disability or who suspect they have a disability and are awaiting an assessment are eligible to receive academic accommodations from Accessible Learning Services.
Permanent disability is a documented disability which is expected to be ongoing in nature and will require accommodations throughout the student’s time in college.
Temporary disability is a documented disability requiring accommodation which has a recognized endpoint.
Example — a student with a broken arm may require note taking services while they are healing.
Interim accommodations may be available if you are experiencing a serious medical or mental health concern for the first time.
