Students who are enrolled in classes on any of Aims Community College locations can receive academic accommodations. Students wanting to request academic accommodations, services and/or auxiliary aids for the first time need to contact the Disability Access Service (DAS) Office to schedule an Intake Meeting and complete the appropriate forms. Appointments can occur on the outlying locations with advanced notice or by phone or email if needed. Documentation of a disability will be requested at the time of the appointment. Copies of the documentation will be made and become property of Aims Community College. Originals are returned to the student. If a student does not have documentation but believes he/she qualifies for services, please contact the DAS Office for options to obtain documentation. Temporary accommodations may be arranged for that term while documentation is being obtained.
DAS must be involved in the process of arranging accommodations and services for a qualified student with a disability seeking access to an educational program.
If a student qualifies for books in alternative format, the student can request their text books in alternative format at the time of the Intake Meeting with the Disability Access Services (DAS) Office. Book requests may take up to five weeks or longer for the DAS Office to obtain, so it is recommended that students requests books as soon as possible. Students who make requests for alternative format textbooks must provide proof of purchase before alternative format files can be provided. If changes to classes and/or schedules are made, please contact DAS immediately to ensure the correct textbooks are requested. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. For any information you may need about your textbooks, you may visit the bookstore.
