These services help you keep the focus on learning

Our Academic Support Center (ASC) offers several services for eligible students with verified temporary or permanent disabilities, including: special exam arrangements, text in alternate formats, note-sharing, adaptive equipment, assistive technology software and hardware, and library assistance.

On a quarterly basis, on completion and submission of the Services Request Form to the ASC, letters to faculty are prepared which identify the accommodations each student is eligible to receive; Exam Authorization forms are provided when special testing arrangements have been approved to be administered at the ASC. Please read the ASC Exam Procedures below for more information.

Note-sharing is available on a volunteer basis. Upon request, a letter, prepared by the ASC for the student to give to the course instructor, requests the instructor to announce that a student with a disability needs a volunteer note-taker. The volunteer is asked to contact the ASC to make arrangements. The identity of the student with a disability can remain confidential.

Computer-Aided Real-Time Translation (CART) and Sign Language Interpreters services for academic support are arranged by the Academic Support Center.

Contact the SSD Administrative Office to establish eligibility.
