Mission Statement

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.

Eligibility for Service

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.

Grievance Policy

The Office of Accessibility Services (hereafter “AS”) at Sinclair College has the responsibility of determining a student’s need for accommodations to address disability related barriers to equal access to education. This determination is made through an interview with the student and a review of documentation of that disability submitted by the student. If AS staff determine that a student is eligible for requested accommodations, AS is responsible for facilitating the accommodations. Please access to review more information on Sinclair's Accessibility Services Grievance Policy.

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)/Section 504

Students or visitors in need of information regarding disability accommodations can contact Lorrie Spivey, Manager of Accessibility and Counseling Services and ADA/504 Coordinator for students and visitors, at lorrie.spivey@sinclair.edu or 937-512-3400.

General Information

applying to accessibility services

Accessibility Services staff, students and instructors work as a team to provide reasonable accommodations, auxiliary aids and support services based on documentation, functional limitations and an assessment of needs. Accessibility Services does not guarantee to meet personal preference requests, but rather ensures that reasonable academic accommodations and auxiliary aids will be provided. Accessibility Services does not provide personal assistance or equipment (i.e. homework assistance, typing, personal laptops or personal aides.)

applying to accessibility services

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.
