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 educational experiences helps the OAS understand how you are most affected. Providing documentation or additional information is not required but strongly encouraged as it supports the OAS with providing 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 helpful, but the OAS acknowledges potential barriers. The OAS is committed to finding appropriate and creative ways to support your access and success at Blue Ridge CTC.
If you are unable to obtain documentation, you may let us know on the Registration Form. Please provide detailed information regarding why you are seeking accommodations.
