Accessibility Services provides assistance to all qualified students with disabilities, whether they are physical, psychiatric or educational. You are required to register with the office and identify your needs in order to be eligible for academic adjustments. All services are based on individual needs. We are here to help you reach your academic goals.
A qualified person with a disability is someone with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more life activities, who with or without accommodations, can meet the essential requirements for participation in a program.
Qualified individuals eligible for disability services need to produce required documentation of their disability and self identify their need for accommodations.
All documents submitted are placed in a confidential file and will not be returned or forwarded to any agency or other college/university.
Documentation is collected and maintained separate from the student's college record and is kept in secure files by the Accessibility Services. Records are maintained for five years after a student's last date of attendance. After five years of non-attendance at Sinclair, records will be destroyed in a confidential manner.
Information regarding a student's disability is shared on a limited confidential need-to-know basis and then only when there is a compelling reason for such disclosure. This may mean sharing with faculty only the information that a student has a documented disability and need for accommodations.
