Accessibility for Students

The Accessibility and Resource Office coordinates accommodations, auxiliary aids, support services and resources for students at the three Shawnee Community College sites as well as its satellite locations. Shawnee Community College is committed to diversity & inclusion and promotes student access to an equitable college experience. Services are coordinated in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act as Amended and Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act.

We serve a diverse group of students including those with physical, vision, hearing, psychiatric, medical, neurological, autism spectrum, ADHD, learning disabilities and cognitive disabilities. We also coordinate temporary accommodations for students that experience significant injury or illness.

To receive services, students should:

  • Self-disclose disability and apply for services.
  • Provide verifying documentation.
  • Meet with the Accessibility and Resource Coordinator to determine what accommodation best meet your needs based on the documentation and information provided.
  • Meet with teacher and/or Accessibility and Resource Coordinator as needed and self-advocate regarding needs.

In addition to providing support services to students, The Accessibility and Resource Office supports faculty in providing student accommodations. We also provide faculty training and education opportunities related to accessibility and teaching students with disabilities.

The Accessibility and Resource Office embraces the social model of disability and is passionate about advancing equity, accessibility and inclusion. I look forward to working with you as a partner in these efforts.
