It is the responsibility of the student to self-identify as a student with a disability.

Students must contact SSD to schedule an appointment with the program director to register for services. It is the responsibility of the student to provide documentation (see documentation guidelines) to support the individual's request for any accommodations.

Students need to 1) complete the SSD Intake form, 2) submit documentation of disability that supports request for accommodation and 3) meet with the director to discuss eligibility.
