Easy 4 Step Process
SSD is committed to providing reasonable accommodations that support academic success and self-efficacy. The process to receive services requires that a student download and complete an application for services and provide disability related documentation through the following steps:
Step 1: Contact SSD
If you cannot download the application, please contact the SSD office at firstname.lastname@example.org. Contact us for our registration materials. You must provide documentation of disability directly to SSD — not to your program or the Office of Admission. All contact with SSD is confidential. Disability-related information is not released except on a need-to-know basis.
Step 2: Complete and Submit
Fill out and submit the Application for Services PDF packet, including documentation of the disability to the SSD office. Without submission of documentation, the processing of the student’s application may be delayed.
Step 3: Review of Materials
An SSD counselor will review the documentation for eligibility and a brief introduction (Meet and Greet) will be scheduled either in person, by phone, or via Zoom.
Step 4: Verification of Enrollment
Upon verification of enrollment in classes, the intake will be scheduled. For students enrolled in online only programs, appointments may be held through Zoom.
During the intake, the SSD counselor will discuss and assign the appropriate accommodations and the student will sign the necessary paperwork.
Please Note: Temporary disabilities (i.e. broken leg, sprained ankle) may be visually verified by staff to authorize on campus mobility accommodations. The accommodation will remain in effect for the term. Other temporary disabilities will be processed in the same manner as a regular applicant.
