Applying for Accommodations

T- T T+

Welcome to SOWELA Technical Community College!

If you are a new student seeking services or accommodations, we look forward to assisting you. Our office serves as a resource and an advocate for students with disabilities to ensure an equal access learning environment.

Students interested in applying for accommodations should complete the three steps listed below:

Step 1: Review the Intake Packet, complete, and submit:

Forms in Intake Packet:

Step 2: Obtain appropriate and relevant documentation of disability:

  • Review the Learning Disability Documentation Guidelines (PDF)
  • Note that an IEP and/or 504 Plan may not be sufficient documentation to establish eligibility, but may be included.
  • Documentation that is not current but otherwise meets college guidelines may be eligible for provisional/temporary accommodations while student seeks re-evaluation.

Step 3: Schedule an intake appointment with a Disability Services staff member:

  • Students taking online classes and/or attending classes at one of our instructional sites can schedule an appointment via phone or email to discuss necessary accommodations.
