Disability Services & College Credit Plus Instructors/ Faculty

High School students taking College Credit Plus courses, and earning college credit, are considered college students. As such, the process for college students with disabilities to receive accommodations is different than at the high school level.

Accommodations for high school students with disabilities are approved through the lenses of The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Free Appropriate Education (FAPE), and The Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 504, Subpart D.

Accommodations for college students with disabilities are approved through the lenses of The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and The Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 504, Subpart E.

Registering with Disability Services

A student with a documented disability must register with Columbus State’s Disability Services in order to be able to utilize accommodations in College Credit Plus courses. A student with an IEP or 504 Plan is not automatically registered with Disability Services.

If a student informs you they have a disability and are approved for accommodations in their College Credit Plus class, you should ask for a copy of their Letter of Accommodation.

If the student has any questions about how to obtain their Letter of Accommodation, please refer them to Disability Services. Disability Services is located at Columbus State’s Downtown Campus, in Eibling 101. Disability Services can be reached at (614) 287-2570.

Letter of Accommodation

In order to be able to receive accommodations in College Credit Plus courses, students must submit a copy of their Letter of Accommodation to their Instructors. A Letter of Accommodation serves as proof of registration with Columbus State’s Disability Services. This document will also list out the student’s approved accommodations. Only accommodations listed on the student’s Letter of Accommodation should be allowed.

A student’s Letter of Accommodation is the only document that Instructors should accept as proof of registration with Disability Services. If a student presents any other documentation (i.e. IEP, 504 Plan), please refer them to Disability Services. Disability Services is located at Columbus State’s Downtown Campus, in Eibling 101. Disability Services can be reached at (614) 287-2570.
