 Accessing Services

The first step in the process for requesting services is to schedule an intake interview with a CSD Counselor. During this interview, the CSD Counselors give students information about appropriate accommodations based on their disability and classes they are taking. Students have an opportunity to discuss the implications of their disabilities and learning strategies.

Each campus site has a CSD Campus Coordinator who works with the CSD Counselors to facilitate smooth day-to-day operations and good communications within our department and college as a whole. The center provides comprehensive support services free of charge to students with disabilities.

For more detailed information on services, refer to the Student Handbook (pages 5-12).
