For Students Seeking Accommodations
The mission of the OAS is to ensure equal access to the college experience by facilitating supportive resources and educational programming to remove barriers from education. Sharing your disability and educational experiences by providing documentation or additional information supports the OAS in determining appropriate accommodations and services. The more information you share, the more it will help us in working with you.
Examples Of Helpful Documentation Or Information
- Audiology report
- Educational records (IEP, 504 plan, etc.)
- Medical records
- Neuropsychological or psychoeducational evaluation
- Proof of accommodations used on standardized exams (SAT, ACT, etc.)
- Statement from a health, mental health, or other service provider
- Vision assessment
- Vocational assessment
What If I Do Not Have Access To Documentation?
Per the 2016 Final Rule for the Amendment of ADA Title II and Title III Regulations, the OAS does not “medicalize” the process of accommodations. Supporting documentation is required, but the OAS acknowledges potential barriers. The OAS is committed to finding appropriate ways to support your access at Blue Ridge CTC.
If you are unable to obtain documentation, you may let us know on the Registration Form or by emailing email@example.com. Please provide detailed information regarding why you are seeking accommodations.
