Students who are registered with Disability Services are encouraged to first meet with an Academic Advisor to receive advisement on their courses. Then, students should also meet with their Disability Counselor. Disability Counselors are not Academic Advisors, but they can make suggestions regarding a student’s courseload, scheduling, and to give the student feedback on course selections. Disability Counselors can also discuss with students how their accommodations may or may not apply to each of their classes.
 
To meet with your Disability Counselor, please contact them directly by phone or email, or you can contact our main office as a walk-in or by phone.
