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.
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 validated (paid) registration and student photo ID.
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.
Return to the Office of Disability Services in a week. Ms. Nelson, who coordinates accommodations, will have accommodation letters for you to present to your professors. She will need to see your student ID.
Each semester you must re-register with the Office of Disability Services. This is a simple process; you need to provide us with a copy of your validated (paid) registration. Depending on the nature of the disability, you may be asked to update your medical documentation.
