About Disability Services

Disability Services provides support services, information and guidance to students with disabilities who are attending or plan to attend Owens Community College. Services are coordinated for individuals with disabilities including, but not limited to, those with physical, learning, mental health, chronic health, or sensory related disabilities.

It is recommended that each student identify any need at least three weeks prior to anticipated enrollment. To determine if students are eligible for services, appropriate documentation must be provided. Documentation must be completed by a qualified individual and provide current levels of functioning.

Accommodation Notification Procedures

Accommodation Eligibility Form
Students who complete a Request for Accommodation form (RFA) will receive an ""Accommodation Eligibility Form" (AEF). The AEF will list all of the accommodations for which the student is eligible, not just the specific accommodations the student has requested. Students are responsible for discussing the specific accommodations in each class with each instructor.

For web classes, the student will email the AEF directly to the instructor.
