Disabled Students And The Accommodation Process

Lycoming College provides appropriate accommodations to disabled students and encourages students to identify their special needs. To access accommodations, students must initiate the process by doing the following.

  • The disabled student must notify the Coordinator of Services for Students with Disabilities (CSSD) of the disability. This is the official process for Disclosure. Please note that disclosure to other members of the Lycoming community, including instructors, is not considered adequate notice to the College.
  • Provide the CSSD with current documentation of the disability prepared by a qualified professional in the field. An IEP alone is not sufficient. The College reserves the right to request additional documentation and information if needed.
  • Meet with the CSSD to discuss the disability, determine appropriate accommodations, and prepare an Accommodation Letter for faculty.

The CSSD maintains disability documentation records. Such records are considered confidential and are subject to FERPA regulations. The CSSD is Mr. Daniel J. Hartsock.
