Building An Ability-Inclusive Community at BCC

Welcome to the Disability Services Office! Our mission is to provide access and equal educational opportunities for students with disabilities, enabling them to succeed academically, socially, and professionally. We accomplish this by working collaboratively with students, faculty, and staff to determine the appropriate adjustments necessary to address their individual learning needs.

The Disability Services Office is an official New York State Voter Registration site. Individuals who visit our office are allowed to register as New York State voters. Assistance is available to complete the registration.

  • Your ID card or accommodation letter is proof that you are legally entitled to accommodations as mandated by BCC, the Americans With Disabilities Act, and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
  • Your accommodations will be listed and you will need to email or show the provided accommodations letter or ID card to any faculty and staff from who you need to request accommodations.
