We are committed to supporting every Johnson State College student in their quest to achieve their full academic potential, and we provide appropriate accommodations and services to ensure that students can fully participate in JSC programs. The Academic Support Services Office coordinates and provides services for students with documented disabilities.
Students seeking accommodations and services at the post-secondary level are required to make a formal request. If you are a student seeking academic accommodations, you will need to submit written documentation (see below) prior to the start of classes, then meet with the learning specialist in the Academic Support Services office in Dewey Hall, preferably at the beginning of your first semester. There is no automatic referral process. Students must meet with the learning specialist each semester to arrange accommodations.
Admitted students who want to request accommodations can find the necessary forms and specific instructions on submitting documentation on the MyJSC Portal. Login is required.
Documenting the Need for Accommodations
Documentation of a disability should be no more than three years old. It must include a diagnostic evaluation by a qualified professional, an assessment and specific diagnosis based on test results, and specific recommendations for accommodations and the reasons for them. The documentation also must substantiate the student’s need for accommodations based on his or her current level of functioning in an educational setting.
A school plan such as an IEP or 504 Plan by itself is insufficient documentation, but it can be part of a more comprehensive evaluation. Moreover, accommodations received in the past do not guarantee future accommodations. If documentation is missing, out of date or insufficient, students are responsible for providing additional documentation. More specific information on documentation can be found below.
