It is the mission of the Center for Student Disability Services (CSDS) to ensure that students with disabilities have equal access to all campus facilities, curricula, and activities. The program's objective focuses on providing students with reasonable disability-related accommodations and the opportunity to maximize their academic success at Brooklyn College. The goal is to ensure an inclusive environment while maintaining and enhancing the college's academic excellence by providing students with disabilities the opportunity to achieve their highest possible academic potential.
The center serves as the primary program for ensuring the successful integration of students with disabilities into the college community.
In order for a student to receive disability related academic adjustments:
- A student must register with the CSDS and provide documentation. Please note: Accommodations are not retroactive. Thus, students should register at the beginning of their first semester to receive the full benefit of the accommodation.
- Together with the student, the CSDS will identify appropriate academic adjustments.
- The student is responsible for submitting the Verification of Disabilities and Course Accommodations forms to the faculty member for his/her signature and for ensuring that the signed form is returned to the Center.
- The exam accommodation procedure is available to students in the CSDS.
