Disability Support Services are provided to students who qualify for such assistance under the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
Request for Disability Services
Academic accommodations may be arranged for students who qualify. Students must meet with the Career & Disability Services Coordinator before accommodations can be arranged. If accommodations are necessary, a Letter of Accommodation will be prepared by the Career & Disability Services Coordinator for students to notify instructors. Students will also be required to contact the Career & Disability Services Office each semester they wish to receive accommodations and provide a new Letter of Accommodation to instructors. We encourage students to contact the Career & Disability Services Coordinator as soon as possible each semester during office hours to discuss such matters in confidence.

- Eligible candidates for disabiity support services include current UACCB students and those individuals taking college placement tests administered by UACCB personnel.
- Students requesting accomodations that require time to arrange should register with the Career and Disability Services office a minimum of ten business days prior to the start of each semester to ensure accommodations are available by the first day of classes. Examples of this include, but are not limited to, texts in alternate formats and audio players. Some accommodations, such as sign language interpreters, may need more than ten days to arrange.
- Students eligible for assistive technology equipment must complete the appropriate checkout form upon receipt of the item and return the item at the conclusion of each semester. Failure to do so may result in a "hold" or charge being placed on the student's account which may affect future registration and access to grades and transcripts.
- Instructors will provide student accommodations only after they have received a current Faculty Accommodation Letter from the student.
- Students may be asked to show identification (student ID or driver's license) before taking an exam.
- Personal belongings (cell phones, purses, book bags, etc) are not permitted in private testing areas and students are encouraged to leave these items at home or in an alternate location.
- Accommodated tests will be given on the same date and time as they are given in class unless approval is provided by the instructor to do otherwise.
- Should cheating occur, the test will be confiscated and the incident reported immediately to the instructor.
- For additional procedures please see the Disability Services Handbook below.
