Disability Access Services

An Aims student meets with staff members of the Disability Access Services department.

Disability Access Services (DAS) at Aims Community College collaborates campus-wide to ensure students with disabilities have equal opportunities. DAS promotes an inclusive learning environment through information, resources, education and direct services to students, faculty and staff. 

DAS helps students with a documented disability receive the accommodations they need to ensure access, such as extended test time, note-taking, assistive technology and more. 

Aims Community College does not discriminate against any student on the basis of pregnancy or related conditions. Absences due to medical conditions relating to pregnancy will be excused for as long as deemed medically necessary by a student’s doctor and students will be given the opportunity to make up missed work.

Any students needing accommodations are encouraged to seek assistance as early as possible by contacting the Disability Access Services (DAS) Office at (970) 339-6565 or to set up an intake appointment to discuss the process of requesting reasonable accommodations.

Resources for Students with Disabilities

Disability Access Services is here to help ensure access during your time as a student at Aims Community College. In addition to providing accommodations to students with documented disabilities, we are committed to making sure you have the resources that will help you pursue your academic and career goals. 

You may find the following resources helpful as you navigate your education.

Disability Access Services (DAS) offers free academic coaching to students registered with our office. Academic coaching is a tool that helps students identify barriers to academic success. Students work with the academic coach on building skills and using college resources to overcome obstacles. Students will work each session on difficulties they are currently experiencing. Some of the common topics that academic coaching can entail are time management, study skills, communication, test taking, technology, and self-care. Students can meet once a week with an academic coach either in person or online. To request academic coaching, a student can email or let the advisor know of their interest at the time of their intake appointment.
