Various academic adjustments are provided to students as determined on an Individual basis by the Office of Services for Students with Disabilities. All academic adjustment memos will be sent from our automated digital system called Accommodate. You will receive a copy of the students request in your inbox from “hccfl-accommodate”.
If you have questions about the academic adjustment request please contact the OSSD at your campus within 24-48 hours upon receiving the email notification from “hccfl-accommodate”.
Definition of Accessible:
"Accessible" means a person with a disability is afforded the opportunity to acquire the same information, engage in the same interactions, and enjoy the same services as a person without a disability in an equally effective and equally integrated manner, with substantially equivalent ease of use. The person with a disability must be able to obtain the information as fully, equally and independently as a person without a disability. Although this might not result in identical ease of use compared to that of persons without disabilities, it still must ensure equal opportunity to the educational benefits and opportunities afforded by the technology and equal treatment in the use of such technology.
U.S. Dept. of Education, Office of Civil Rights, 2/18/13
Students who feel they may need an accommodation based on the impact of a disability are encouraged to meet privately with their instructors to discuss their specific needs and must contact the Office of Services for Students with Disabilities to establish documentation of a disability and to coordinate reasonable accommodation.
