Accessing Disability Services

Accessing Disability Services

 

Students requesting reasonable accommodations and/or services must submit documentation of a disabling condition to verify eligibility under the Americans with Disabilities Amendment Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Disability Services’ own guidelines.

Step 1: Submit Documentation
Submit current documentation of disability to Disability Services, contact information below. All documentation is kept confidential. Inadequate information, incomplete answers, and/or illegible handwriting will delay the eligibility review process.

Mail, fax (not confidential fax), email, or bring documentation to:
Christy Johnson, Director of the learning commons
Kennebec Valley Community College
92 Western Avenue
Fairfield, ME 04937
Email: cjohnson2@kvcc.me.edu
Phone: 207.453.5084           
Fax: 207.453.5194
 

Note: We encourage you to submit materials as early as possible. 

Once your documentation has been submitted, you will be contacted in order to schedule an intake appointment to discuss accommodations, procedures, and services. Disability Services requires five business days to review the file prior to the intake appointment.

Step 2: Meet with Professors
After the intake appointment, students who have been approved for accommodations will be given faculty letters to be given to their professors each semester. Students should meet with each professor to discuss the arrangements for receiving accommodations. Instructors do not have to provide accommodations to students if they have not been informed of the need in a timely manner.
