Services and Accommodations

Access Center Students

Academic accommodations or adjustments empower individuals with disabilities to fully participate in an academic program. Students who need accommodations work with our staff to identify and implement appropriate, reasonable and individualized accommodations by developing a Verified, Individualized Services, Accommodations and Academic Adjustments plan, or VISA3.

The VISA3 lists accommodations that have been discussed and agreed upon by the student and the college. Students will work with faculty members and/or the Access Center to secure the appropriate accommodations when they need them.
