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.
