Like many other Waubonsee services, this department is providing help through virtual means including live chat. Please view our Services Directory for key information and contact methods. Anyone who wants to come to campus is required to conduct and pass a self assessment (pdf) at home first and then wear a face mask while on campus.
Accessibility is a core value across Waubonsee, and it’s the focus of the college’s Access Center for Disability Resources. Every day we work with students who have a variety of disabilities—providing academic support services, individualized accommodations and self-advocacy guidance.
Our dedication doesn’t end there. Waubonsee has a campus chapter of Delta Sigma Omicron, which is open to all students interested in advocating on behalf of or working with individuals with disabilities. The college also offers courses in Disability Studies, designed to offer insight into disabilities that generates the sensitivity and energy to create change. And since life happens off campus too, you can refer to our Community Resource Guide for additional information and support.

Transition from High School to College
We know moving up to college comes with changes, and students become their own advocates and assume responsibility for their own accommodations and educational goals. Our office offers a variety of programs and events to help high school students and their parents with this important transition.
