Services for Students
After registering with Disability Services at Columbus State, you should present your instructor(s) with a copy of your Letter of Accommodation (LOA). You will receive your LOA via email approximately 1-3 business days after your intake interview. Your LOA can also be requested by emailing email@example.com. It is your responsibility to provide your instructor(s) with your LOA. Failure to do so may result in a delay of your services. Accommodations are not granted retroactively.
For further information about our services and policies please check out our Student Handbook.
Students approved for Alternate Media can request their textbooks and other course materials (syllabus, handouts, etc.) be converted into alternate formats such as electronic text, large print and braille.
When a student uses captioning services, a transcriber will provide a script, in real time, through a laptop computer screen for all academic-related activities, i.e., lecture, recitation, lab, study groups.
Columbus State offers a number of services to help students who need sign language interpreting services. Unlike high school, students must request all interpreting services themselves.
Disability Services (DS) provides testing services for all students who are registered with DS and have been approved for testing accommodations.
Students who need services on a temporary basis (e.g. due to an injury, accident or short-term illness) may also register for services by following the registration procedures as outlined on our "How to Register with Disability Services" page.
