Registering with Disability Services

It is the student’s responsibility to make their accommodation needs known and to provide appropriate documentation to support the requested accommodations.  Students must also request accommodations for their classes each semester using the AIM system in order to have FNLs prepared and distributed.

Documentation

Disability documentation can be submitted for review at any time during the year as long as the student is a currently enrolled student at TAMU-CC or an incoming student that has accepted their offer of admission.Documentation submitted to Disability Services (DS) is confidential and used solely for the purpose of determining appropriate academic accommodations.  Affiliation with Disability Services is not reported on a student’s transcript.  Students should review the Documentation Guidelines for more information.  Documentation should be uploaded to the AIM system.  For more information about how to submit documentation, please contact the Disability Services office.

Once a Student Applies for Services

Once a student’s application and supporting documentation are received the student’s file will be submitted to the DS staff for a panel review and assigned to an Accommodations Counselor.  After review, the Accommodations Counselor will contact the student to schedule the Access Planning Meeting.  This process may take up to seven business days.  At the postsecondary education level, students are solely responsible for decisions regarding their accommodation needs.  Parents may attend meetings with their student and DS staff at the student’s discretion. 

Accommodations are based on the specific disability, documented needs, student self-report, and the nature of the course(s).  During the Access Planning Meeting the student and Accommodations Counselor will review the student’s file to determine appropriate academic accommodations.  Students will also be provided with instructions regarding faculty notification and their responsibilities after the initial meeting, including using the AIM system to request accommodations for classes each semester.
