Services for Students with Disabilities
Students with disabilities are welcome at SJR State and are encouraged to contact the Counseling Center on their campus.
The Counseling Centers house the disability coordinators. The disability coordinators ensure access to accommodations for those students determined eligible. Students must report to campus disability coordinators at the beginning of each semester if they wish to receive accommodations. Special assistance is available with academic orientation, registration, academic planning, special supplies, and equipment. In addition, specialized services are available to students whose disability prevents them from participating fully in classroom activities. The College provides services relating to student academic success; transportation and personal services are the responsibility of the student.
Students seeking disability accommodations for initial placement testing should notify the campus disability coordinator when scheduling the test that accommodations will be needed.
The College does not identify students with disabilities on the admission application. Therefore, if you have a disability and wish to receive accommodations, it is necessary to self identify. Contact the disability ocordinator at the nearest SJR State campus to schedule an appointment. The disability coordinator will talk to you about your personal experience with disability, past use of accommodations and strategies and technologies used. The disability coordinator will also review any diagnostic reports, IEP’s, teacher observations and/or doctor’s notes presented. Every effort will be made to tailor individual accommodations to your specific disability. Additional resources available to help assure student success will also be discussed.
The disability coordinator will ask that you visit often and at least once a semester to review and adjust accommodations if necessary. Faculty will only be notified of your eligibility for accommodatons if specifically requested by you, in writing, each semester.
All of the Counseling staff looks forward to meeting and working with you.
