We will work with you to meet your needs. Some typical accommodations that we provide include:

  1. Untimed testing proctored in our offices
  2. Extra time to complete coursework, as negotiated with the instructor
  3. Notetaking services
  4. Lecture recording
  5. Textbooks on CD—most textbooks can be converted to .mp3 or other audio format

To receive disability services at Sierra Nevada College, you must register with our office before you make special requests of your instructor. For more information or to start the process of registering for disability services, please contact Henry Conover. All accommodations must be approved by the Director of Academic Services, who will require formal documentation by a licensed physician. We can provide referrals to local professionals.
