Please use the links on the right of this page to find the information you need and email us if you have any questions. Over 700 students are registered in our program, so we rely on you to connect with us and make sure that you complete the items on your checklist.

Student Responsibilities 

Our staff embraces the philosophy that students with disabilities are students with abilities who face unique learning barriers. We work hard to be a welcoming and supportive place where you can face, manage or overcome barriers. To do that, we rely on students to connect with us to establish a collaborative working relationship.
