Accommodations and Services

Accommodations for students

The Office of Student Disability Services is required to offer accommodations to students based on their disability. Most reasonable accommodations will need to be requested by the student each semester. Requests can be made through an interactive process between the student and an SDS staff member.

The Office of Student Disability Services also has Enhanced Services, called Project Pass, which students can choose to participate. By signing up for Project Pass (enhanced services), students are required to use all the services. Learn more about Project Pass..

Students are encouraged to schedule an appointment to meet with our Director or Associate Director to discuss a meal plan adjustment or accommodations related to food allergies or dietary restrictions. The student would need to register with our office, and have documentation on file that would support the need for specific accommodations or adjustments. Students are also encouraged to contact Joe Chism (joe.chism@sodexo.com), the Registered Dietitian with Sodexo. Jim can provide students assistance with dietary needs and food allergies the student may be experiencing.

Interpreters and Captioning

Please make an appointment with the Director or Associate Director. Students will need to discuss the type of accommodation they have used before: interpreter, FM system, C-Print captioning are a few examples.
