Who We Are
The Office of Disability Support Services (DSS) at Seminole State offers College constituents equity and excellence in education. We are one campus serving all campuses. By working with students, faculty and staff on all Seminole State campuses, DSS ensures that appropriate academic adjustments are made to give all students equal opportunities inside the classroom and around campus.
Seminole State believes in accentuating the abilities of all students and is committed to providing appropriate academic support services for persons with disabilities to ensure equal access for all.
DSS has helped thousands of students since launching in 1983. In addition to collaborating with Seminole State students and employees, the office works closely with counselors and area agencies to provide academic support:
- Adaptive instructional equipment
- Reasonable accommodations
DSS serves students under the auspices of Student Success Services in compliance with Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. In order to receive services, students must provide appropriate documentation of a disability. Documentation requirements and related forms are available on the Documenting a Disability webpage.

Registering with our office requires documentation of a DSM-5 condition and additional forms found on our Registering With DSS page. We are currently registering students face-to-face as well as remote via Zoom. To inquire about registering or to register for services, please email us at email@example.com stating your desire to register for services, and attach your documentation. We will also be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Here is a list of steps necessary to receive academic accommodations:
Contact and meet with a DSS specialist at any of Seminole State College campuses. We recommend students contact the DSS office at their preferred campus to schedule an intake appointment.
Provide up-to-date, current documentation from a licensed professional.
- The appropriate clinical documentation should substantiate the disability and present evidence to establish a rationale supporting the need for accommodations.
- A school plan such as an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or a 504 plan is insufficient documentation in and of itself but can be included as part of a more evaluative report.
After documentation is evaluated, contact and meet with the DSS Specialist to discuss any accommodations that may be necessary.
- DSS will make final determination of whether appropriate and reasonable accommodations are warranted and can be provided to the individual based on the information received.
