Resources for Students

Thanks for checking out our resources for students. We look forward to connecting with you!

What We Do

Accessibility Resources collaborates with the campus community to ensure an accessible and inclusive college experience for students with disabilities.

We work with students with documented disabilities, including but not limited to: learning disabilities, ADHD, psychological disorders, chronic health conditions, allergies, physical disabilities, brain injuries, neurological disorders, and sensory disabilities related to vision and hearing. We also support students with temporary medical conditions, such as concussions and other injuries. Additionally, we consult with students who question whether they might have a disability, as well as those who are referred by a faculty or staff member.

Whether you are a new student at Colorado College or a current student just now checking out our resources, we would be happy to talk with you about the services we offer or disabilities and access in general.

What We Offer

Our staff members work with students on an individual basis to plan support services, including reasonable accommodations that facilitate access to learning, living, and other experiences at CC. Some of the accommodations used by students include: extended time on exams, a distraction-reduced exam setting, use of a computer with word processing for exams, accessible formats of text, note-taking assistance, and accessible campus housing. We also provide academic counseling, including assistance with time management and organizational skills. And in collaboration with Academic Technology Services, we offer a variety of assistive technology options to enhance students' academic experiences.

Rgistering with Accessibility Resources

Accessibility Resources is ready to help you make the most of your CC experience, but you must initiate the process. Please start by contacting our office to set up a time to talk with a staff member about your request for support services. Additionally, please complete the Request for Accommodations and Services online form and provide documentation of disability, if applicable. The Request for Accommodation and Services form can be accessed on our Registering for Services page.

We are here to help you at any point, so please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions or need assistance.

We look forward to hearing from you!
