The office of Academic Support Services creates accommodation plans for students with disabilities. Students with documented disabilities are encouraged to register with Academic Support Services as soon as they are accepted to the College.
Registering with Academic Support Services involves submitting appropriate documentation and the Disabilities Disclosure Form as well as having an interview with the Director. In order to receive accommodations, you must register with Academic Support Services and submit the Disability Accommodations Request Form. You can download the forms below or request an application package to be mailed to you by calling 276.944.6145.
To Register with Academic Support Services
You should review the first two forms completely before filling out the Disability Disclosure Form and the Disability Accommodations Request Form.
The Director, in conjunction with the student, will create an Accommodation Plan each semester based on student eligibility as determined by the documentation. The following is a list, including but not limited to, possible accommodations granted through Academic Support Services:
All students with accommodations are required to meet with their instructors, provide instructors with a copy of the accommodation plan, and return a signed copy of the signature form to the Powell Resource Center. Instructors are not required to provide accommodations to students until they have received a copy of the accommodation plan. The instructor's signature on the Signature Form signifies to the Director of Academic Support Services that the instructor has a copy of the accommodation plan.
If you have any questions contact the Director of Academic Support Services or call 276.944.6144.
