Resources for Students
Accessibility Resources collaborates with the campus community to ensure an inclusive and accessible college experience for students with disabilities. We are dedicated to providing reasonable accommodations and services as we encourage students to develop independence and self‑determination.
What We Do
Accessibility Resources coordinates support for students who connect with our office for a variety of reasons. We provide accommodations for 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 and those who are referred by a faculty or staff member.
Whether you're a new student at Colorado College or a current student just now checking out our resources, we'd be happy to talk with you about the services we offer, the Block Plan, 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, 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.
Connecting with Accessibility Resources
Accessibility Resources is ready to help you make the most of your experiences at CC, but you must initiate the process. Please start off by contacting our office to set up a time to talk with our staff about your request for support services. Additionally, you should complete the Request for Accommodations and Services online form and, if applicable, provide documentation of disability. The Request for Accommodation and Services form can be accessed on our Registering for Services page.
Of course, we're here to help you at any point, so please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or need assistance.
We look forward to hearing from you!
