Disability Support Services
Seminole State's Disability Support Services (DSS) Office serves as an advocate for students with disabilities and provides academic support services, such as interpreters, note takers, tutors and testing accommodations. DSS coordinates services with area agencies and collaborates with College departments to help faculty and students create a positive learning environment. DSS also suggests strategies that can be used to make the classroom user-friendly and helps students understand their rights and responsibilities.
To be eligible for disability-related services, individuals must have a documented disability as defined by applicable federal and state laws. Services are available to students whose disabilities include, but are not limited to, hearing impairments, physical impairments, specific learning disabilities, speech impairments, visual impairments or other disabilities that require administrative or academic accommodations. Individuals seeking services are required to provide recent documentation from an appropriate licensed professional qualified to make a diagnosis.
Students who have a disability that may require special assistance must contact DSS, make an appointment for an intake interview and bring appropriate disability documentation verifying the disability. Reasonable accommodation requests must be supported by current documentation. All information is confidential and will be used only to assist the student.
Substitutions to the Degree Requirements
Course substitutions will be considered for those students who have documented disabilities. Per Revised Board Rule 6A-10.041 (effective 10/25/10), documentation must “substantiate that the disability can be reasonably expected to prevent the individual from meeting requirements for…graduation.”
Course substitutions will only be granted in cases where the modification does not constitute a fundamental alteration in the nature of the college program or when the academic requirement(s) are not essential to the program of study being pursued by the student or to meet licensing or certification requirements.
Students requesting a course substitution must provide the current, relevant and comprehensive documentation and assessment data from certified professionals. This documentation must substantiate that the disability can be reasonably expected to prevent the student from meeting the degree requirement(s) for which a substitution is being requested
Additional information is available in College Procedure 3.0600, Accommodations for Students with Disabilities.
