Disability Services

How to Apply for Services

To apply for services, visit the Office of Disability Services in Loew Hall [LO], Room 211, at least four weeks before classes begin.

  1. You will be given the opportunity to register as a New York State voter.
  2. You will be given an application to register with the Office of Disability Services. There are two parts. One is an Intake Form for you to complete, and the other is a Medical Documentation Form to be completed by your medical provider, which will document your disability.
  3. When you have the Medical Documentation Form and the Intake Form completed, please call the Office of Disability Services to make an appointment 718.289.5874. Bring a copy of your class registration and your BCC Student Photo ID.
  4. You will meet with the department manager and/or our accommodation specialist to discuss your application and determine accommodations. You will be asked to sign an agreement.
  5. We will make a Photo ID for you with your accommodations on the back of the ID. It is your responsibility to keep this ID with you and show it to your professors.
  6. At any time, visit us to talk about your classes, professors, or anything that may be on your mind as you engage in becoming a BCC student
Note about Confidentiality: We maintain disability records in a confidential manner as defined by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). The Original Medical Documentation Form you provide to us is RETURNED to you after the Intake. We do not identify you to anyone on campus as being registered with this office unless we have your written consent. There is one exception to this: If there is a direct threat to the safety of you or another individual, we are legally obligated to release information to appropriate professionals without consent.
