Are you planning to take classes in the summer or fall 2015 semester? Are you also planning to use accommodations in your next semester of classes? If your answer is yes to both of these questions, here are some tips from Disability Services to help you prepare to register and receive accommodations:
- Get advised! Working with an advisor to choose your courses is very important. We suggest meeting with your advisor as soon as possible once you have decided to take classes at CPCC. The closer it gets to registration opening the more difficult it can be to get an appointment with an advisor! Click here to find your advisor at CPCC.
- Returning students: Contact your Disability Counselor. Your Disability Counselor can “advise on the advising” to help you fine tune your schedule based on your individual needs. Some things to consider are how many classes to take in a semester, time of day to take classes, and scheduling break time in between classes.
- Register for classes. Use CPCC’s Schedule Builder to pick your classes.
- Request your accommodation forms from your Disability Counselor.Contact your Disability Counselor to inform him/her that you are registered for classes and need your accommodation forms.
Don’t wait until the last minute! Get started today to ensure you get the classes you want for summer and fall 2015! Don’t forget, we are here to help! Please contact Disability Services if you have questions.
