Students are required to follow the policies/guidelines established at their home college; therefore, each college's documentation requirements and process will vary slightly.

Student notifies instructor that he/she needs or is working on receiving academic accommodations.
Student contacts the Academic Accommodations/Disabilities Services Coordinator at his/her college to complete necessary paperwork and provide required documentation.
Either the student provides the instructor with college documentation of the Academic Accommodation, or the Disabilities Services Coordinator contacts the instructor with the student’s Accommodations Plan.
Once verification that all appropriate documentation is on file and the correct accommodation is requested, the instructor makes the necessary adjustments for the student within the course.
It is the student's responsibility to inform the Disabilities Services Coordinator at his/her college that accommodations are needed.
