Our Services

Students who qualify for  Disability Support Services (DSS) and have completed the registration process are encouraged to take full advantage of the services that DSS offers. Contact a DSS staff member  to learn more about the services described below, as well as additional supports that are available.

Academic and Career Counseling

DSS staff provide counseling and/or information on available resources to students with disabilities in order to assist them in achieving their academic and career goals.  Students are encouraged to meet with a DSS staff member when issues arise.

Accommodations for Class Requirements

The DSS office is charged with reviewing disability documentation and approving accommodations based on that documentation. Some possible accommodations that may be approved include, but are not limited to the following:

Coordination of Services

DSS staff work with students who are new to the college environment, those who are in their final semester, and everyone in between. Services that are approved are discussed at length with students and assistance is provided in coordinating those services.

Student Advocacy

Unlike high school, students are expected to self-advocate. The DSS office is always available to assist. Students are encouraged to meet with a DSS staff member to resolve issues when they arise.

Transition Services

DSS staff assist students in their transition from secondary school and help them navigate this new environment.  Assistance can also be provided when current students decide to transition to another higher education institution.

Contact a DSS Staff Member for additional information on these services.
