The Disability Student Services (DSS) Office, in
Room 105, Maine Hall is also
coordinated by Elizabeth Worden and serves students with
disabilities. In college, there are no “special ed”
classes. All students are expected to be qualified to be
successful in courses, with reasonable accommodations, if a
disability is involved. To receive accommodations in
college, students with a disability must register with the DSS
1. telling the DSS
Office that they are a student with a
the DSS Office with the appropriate documentation
about the disability;
semester, picking up the paperwork from the DSS Office that
allows them to ask for accommodations for all or some of
their courses during that semester;
sure that the DSS Office knows if there
is a problem concerning their accommodations.
If you have received special education services in high school,
we encourage you to make sure that the DSS Office receives
copies of your documentation of a disability
even if you feel that you do not want to use accommodations
while you are in college. You may change your mind and
decide you want to use them after all. When you change
your mind, it may be in the middle of a semester and you may be
upset because you are having trouble with your classes. If
you have already made sure that the DSS Office has your
documentation, accommodations can be put in place right away.
If not, you may add to your mid-semester stress by having to get
the documentation to the DSS Office before accommodations can be
put into place.
