horizontal Separator

Disability Support Services will:

1. Determine whether or not a student is eligible to receive reasonable accommodations and/or support services on the CSUF campus. DSS requires verification by an appropriate professional, such as a physician, rehabilitation counselor or therapist.

2. Respect the confidential nature of a student’s disability and maintain professional standards. When granted permission to release information by a particular student, DSS professional staff will provide the requested information to the specified person or agency in a timely manner.

3. Screen applicants and may provide assessment of learning disabilities to determine appropriate academic adjustments.

4. Prescribe appropriate accommodations and support services on the campus and in the classroom, including test-taking accommodations.

5. Prescribe appropriate academic accommodations for an individual student. The office will provide students with Accommodation Letters (see appendix), which students then present to their instructors at the beginning of the semester, or at such time as the disability is verified.

6. Assist students in obtaining access, when feasible, to computers and other technological adaptations.

7. Provide, upon request, consultation to instructors regarding how to implement most effectively the authorized academic accommodations.
