The Accessibility Services office is located on the Dayton campus at Building 10, Room 424.
All Sinclair Community College Regional Centers, in Centerville, Englewood, Huber Heights, and Mason, have an Accessibility Services liaison to connect students to accessibility accommodations at each location. Visit your Regional Center front desk for help.
There are no special classes/programs designated for students with disabilities. The purpose of the accommodations is to provide each student with equal access to the information and course content. Given these accommodations, a student who is otherwise qualified should be able to be successful within the context of a normal classroom setting.
You should provide information about current functional limitations and the specific impact on your learning. You can submit an IEP, ETR, 504 Plan or a Disability Verification form. You can pick up a Disability Verification form from the Accessibility Services office or print a copy of the Disability Verification form. This form must be completed by a qualified professional and faxed, mailed, or hand delivered to the Accessibility Services office.
Sinclair is committed to serving all students with disabilities as defined by federal regulations. The federal definition of a disability includes a person who:
The determination of whether an individual has a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is not based upon the diagnosis of the impairment, but rather upon the impact of that impairment on the life of the individual.
No, however, if you want to receive academic accommodations, and/or auxiliary aids you must self-identify to the Accessibility Services and provide documentation. All documentation submitted to our office is confidential and is not shared with instructors or staff. Accommodations and services cannot be provided retroactively.
Individual instructors have no obligation to accommodate a student until they are approved for services by Accessibility Services.
