To ensure the campus is inclusive to our community, we provide leadership and facilitate equal access to educational programs, campus activities, career exploration and employment opportunities for all students. To promote student learning and development outcomes that are aligned with the college’s mission and goals, that fosters student success and persistence. The Office of Accommodative Services strives to strengthen and develop interdepartmental and community partnerships in order to accomplish its purpose and goals.
To eliminate competitive disadvantages and remove environmental barriers that impact learning while fostering independent, self-determined learners.
As a result of our orientation, initial intake process, the development of a comprehensive accommodation plan and our formal outreach efforts, students who engage with the Office of Accommodative Services will be able to:
Students who believe they have a current and essential need for accommodative services are encouraged to self-identify, provide documentation (prepared by a qualified professional), complete the student ‘Self-Assessment Survey’ and meet with our professional staff. Together a comprehensive accommodation plan is developed and their initial ‘letter of accommodation’ for faculty is generated. Accommodations are fluid and students can meet with our staff at any point to reevaluate needs.
Prospective students can email (OASdocumentation@sunydutchess.edu) or fax (888-965-6996) documentation to OAS directly, documentation is kept confidential and if a student decides not to enroll at DCC, documentation will be purged from our records.
After the initial intake, students request accommodation letters each subsequent semester, barring no changes, no appointment is necessary.
