  • Enrollment assistance

  • Recording devices
  • Adaptive software
  • FM system
  • Screen-reading (JAWS, zoom-text)
  • Information and referral to campus and outside agencies
Once documentation is on file and it is determined that a student is eligible for accommodations, the student should: 
  • Keep a copy of his/her disability documentation
  • Give their accommodation letters to their professors
  • Meet with instructors during their office hours to discuss specific accommodation needs
  • Inform the DAC of changes to his/her schedule, including withdrawing from class
Documentation and student files will be maintained confidentially for five years after the student's last semester using AC services.

Evacuations & Emergencies

Students with disabilities who need assistance exiting the building in the event of an evacuation should connect with the AC office to make sure their class schedule is on the AC Evacuation list.
Locations of students with disabilities are kept in the Security Office so the Fire Department can locate and assist students during an evacuation.
