Special Services Counselors work with students who need assistance to succeed in college due to a physical disability, learning disability, insufficient academic skills, or language barrier.

We'll work with you to help identify career options and to develop a personalized education plan.

  • Specialized counseling
  • Evaluation of student interest and abilities
  • Career awareness and exploration
  • Networking within the college and agencies
  • Referrals for tutoring to the Learning Center
  • Alternative testing arrangements
  • Coordination of services such as:
    • Captionists
    • FM equipment
    • Interpreters
    • Note-takers

Procedures for Requesting Academic and Testing Accommodations


  • Alternate format textbooks: Contact Special Services as soon as possible if you will need an alternate format of your textbook. It may take a month or more to obtain materials in alternate format.

Campus Accessibility:

In compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the American Disability Act of 1991, academic accommodations will be provided to students who have a documented disability.
