Registering for Services
Any otherwise qualified student or prospective student who states that he or she has a disability as defined under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) or the guidelines for Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act may register with the department.
To officially register with Disability Services, current CSCC students attending any CSCC campus or prospective student must:
• Submit documentation of your disability for review by the Disability Services Advocate. You may submit the paperwork via fax, mail, or drop off to the Disability Services office. This is our DS contact information link. Information regarding documentation criteria is available at this eligibility requirements link.
• Check your Columbus State email for notification from your assigned DS Advocate that your documentation is acceptable. If so, you are now eligible to schedule your intake appointment. Please note that if your documentation is insufficient, the email will inform you of other information that needs to be submitted before you can register for services.
• Meet with your assigned DS Advocate for an Intake Interview and complete an Application for Services. This may take about an hour. During this meeting, you and the DS Advocate will discuss your disability and how it impacts upon your learning in the classroom, and discuss and learn to utilize approved services and accommodations
Disability Services can also provide services and accommodations for the following special circumstances:
CSCC-OSU Marion Partnership Students at the Delaware campus:
If you are participating in the CSCC- OSU Marion partnership and need to receive classroom services and accommodations, Columbus State students must register with the Office of Disability Services at Columbus State and Ohio State Marion students must register with Disability Services at Ohio State Marion.
Please note that the services you receive from both campuses may differ and vary. If you have questions regarding your approved accommodations, contact your assigned Disability Services (DS) Advocate.
You may also view the CSCC-OSU Marion Partnership Brochure for more information.
Students that need services on a temporary basis (e.g. due to injury or accident, or a condition that is not expected to last over the course of the semester) may also register for services by following the registration procedures as stated above.
COMPASS/ ASSET Testing Accommodations:
CSCC’s COMPASS Placement Test can be administered by Disability Services if you need to have an audio version of the test due to disability. In order to be approved, the student will need to contact a Disability Services Advocate to discuss all options for taking the test and to arrange a meeting to review the disability documentation for approval of the audio format accommodation.
Students may visit Disability Services during walk in hours to discuss the procedure for registering with the office. Students may also contact our office to schedule an appointment to discuss available options with a Disability Services Advocate. The dates for scheduled appointments and walk-ins are listed below.
