How Students with Disabilities Get Assistance
Disability Access Services (DAS) at Aims Community College was established to ensure that students with disabilities admitted to Aims Community College are provided equal access to university programs and services. Appropriate accommodations are determined for each student on an individual basis by DAS professional staff and are based on disability documentation. Students with disabilities requesting services through DAS are required to provide documentation from a qualified professional verifying the existence of the disabling condition and describing the effect of the disability on the student's ability to access the educational process.
- Once DAS has received adequate documentation of disability,
the student must meet with DAS staff for an intake meeting. Intake
meetings are scheduled for about four weeks prior to the first
day of class each semester to ensure that students can have the
appropriate accommodations in place by the start of the term.
Meetings held while classes are in session are scheduled according
to DAS availability and student/participant's class schedules.
During this meeting the DAS will, 1) provide comprehensive information
about DAS, 2) provide each student with a new student
packet including written policies/procedures, 3) review
each accommodation available to participating students, and,
4) provide information and advice regarding support available
to all Aims Community College students.
- In order to be eligible to receive a specific accommodation,
students must provide disability documentation, which supports
the need for that accommodation. The more specific your documentation
is in describing the current affects of your disability on your
functional limitations, especially as a college student; the
easier it is for DAS to identify appropriate and reasonable accommodations.
