Self-Identifying with a Disability

In order to be eligible for appropriate accommodations, students must identify themselves to the College and provide documentation of a disability. A student may register with a disability on a voluntary, confidential basis at any time. However, the College is not responsible for providing any accommodations for students who have not registered with a disability and requested a specific accommodation.

It should also be noted that accommodations are not retroactive and cannot be provided until the student has completed the disability registration process. Moreover, because some accommodations take time to arrange, students must self-identify, register, and request specific accommodations in a timely manner to help meet their needs.

All entering students should receive a Accessibility Needs Assessment Questionnaire in the Enrollment Guide (See Forms) before their first semester. Completing and returning this questionnaire constitutes self-identification. If for some reason the form is not received or returned, a student may still register with a disability at any time by contacting the Office of Student Accessibility Services.
