How to Obtain Services
The Office for Students with Disabilities facilitates accommodations with faculty and staff, and serves as an information
resource to promote awareness and knowledge of disabilities. The student is responsible for self-identifying with the Office
for Students with Disabilities. This voluntary declaration is independent from the admissions process itself. Once contact
has been made with the Office for Students with Disabilities, the student is required to provide current (preferably, within
the last three years) documentation from professionals who make such diagnoses.
Students are required to secure appropriate disability testing and documentation on their own. All disability records
are treated as confidential and secured in the Office for Students with Disabilities. Once disability testing information is
received, appropriate services can begin. Students requiring special assistance and/or support services must contact the
Office for Students with Disabilities 30days before the term begins or as soon as possible thereafter.
For additional information, contact the Office for Students with Disabilities located on the Key West Campus. Students can
make appointments with the Coordinator for Students with Disabilities by calling 305-809-3292.
