Accessing Disability Services
To access reasonable accommodations, appropriate documentation of your disability must be submitted to Disability Services. Please visit our How to Access Services page for more information.
Prospective students requesting reasonable accommodations for the Accuplacer placement test must submit appropriate documentation of disability to Disability Services PRIOR to scheduling an appointment for the test. For more information about accommodations, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Written Plan for Reasonable Accommodations
After establishing eligibility, students will need to meet with a staff member from the Office of Disability Services to discuss and create their personalized testing and classroom Accommodation Plan. OCC decides eligibility under Section 504/ADA and the appropriateness of the accommodations at the postsecondary level. During this interactive process, reasonable accommodations may be provided based on the individual’s intake information and documentation.
Accommodation Plans are valid for one semester. Students may request an updated letter each semester online at: go.ocean.edu/requestdocs.
New, visiting or prospective students not registered with OCC Disability Services should initiate their request online at: go.ocean.edu/intake.
