Eligibility for Accessibility Services

​​​​​​​​If you have a diagnosed disability and are enrolled at Dallas College, you may be eligible for services through the Accessibility Services Office. In order to receive services, you must follow these steps:

  1. Provide documentation to the Accessibility Services Office.

    ​​Providing appropriate documentation of a disability and/or the need for services is your responsibility as a student. Official disability documentation must originate with (come from) an appropriate professional in the field.

    Submit documentation as soon as possible to receive services. You should submit documentation of the need for accommodations at least one month before the start of the semester in which you are enrolling.

  2. The documentation is reviewed by a committee.

    Documentation is evaluated by a review committee to recommend appropriate services and accommodations best suited to each student. Classroom accommodations are determined each semester based on the content of the course and the need for services. Documentation submitted to the Accessibility Services Office is confidential and used solely for the purpose of identifying and coordinating appropriate accommodations to allow students full access to educational opportunities at Dallas College.

  3. An Accessibility Services support staff member will contact you to conduct an intake to determine appropriate accommodations.
