DISABILITY SERVICES

 
General Information
Description of ProgramSupports the mission, academic programs and the advancement of Suffolk County Community College by ensuring that qualified individuals with disabilities are afforded an equal opportunity to participate in the programs, services and activities at SCCC through the identification and enactment of reasonable accommodations to institutional policies and procedures, the provision of effective auxiliary aides and services and other support services while cultivating a campus culture that is sensitive and responsive to the needs of students. The goal of Suffolk County Community College with regard to students with disabilities is to equalize educational opportunities by minimizing physical, psychological and learning barriers. We attempt to provide as typical a college experience as is possible, encouraging students to achieve academically through the provision of special services, auxiliary aids, or reasonable program modifications. The main objectives are to: insure that students with disabilities have equal access to all programs and services of the institution; promote independence and preparation for entry into a competitive society; facilitate the development of self-advocacy skills; and assist students to transfer skills learned in the classroom to the world at large. Contact the Office of Disability Services at each campus for more information.
