Assistive Technology

Assistive Technology (AT) is any device, piece of software, equipment or tool that helps people with disabilities improve, maintain or increase their functional capabilities. Many college students with a disability who would qualify for Assistive Technology, don’t know what Assistive Technology is and don’t know there are tools and programs available to support them prior to starting college.

About Our Office

Commitment

The Office of Student Accommodations (OSA) is committed to ensuring all students have an opportunity to pursue a college education.  We are committed to providing reasonable accommodations and services that allow  students with disabilities and chronic health conditions equal access to programs and activities of the college.  Our policies and practices will eliminate or reduce barriers to the extent possible.

Confidentiality Statement

The Office of Student Accommodations maintains a high level of confidentiality to prevent the disclosure of any student information that is shared with us during the accommodation process. Disability documentation is maintained on a secure database and is not part of the academic transcript. It is not shared with other departments within 69风流 or other entities, unless explicitly requested by the student with a disability or as permitted by law. As a Responsible Employee, counselors have a responsibility to disclose information to relevant parties, if a student reveals a plan to harm themselves or others. Counselors are also responsible for reporting known incidents of sex-based discrimination or assault.   

Overview of Laws

OSA makes reasonable accommodations in providing course, program, and building modification, and/or auxiliary aids and services in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) of 2008. No academically qualified student with a disability will be denied access to or participation in the services, programs, and activities of the College.
