Registration Steps
The college does not assume responsibility for providing accommodations
or services to students who have not identified themselves as having a
qualifying disability.

It is the responsibility of the student to inform faculty via letter form our office of the necessary accommodations at the beginning of each semester in order to receive accommodations throughout the semester.

Students who encounter problems regarding accommodations should notify
the Office of Disability Services immediately.
