Accessibility Services

 

Berkeley College’s staff makes great efforts to accommodate the needs of our students who have disabilities. Each campus has an ADA Coordinator or a personal counselor who serves as the accessibility support service representative. The student must schedule an appointment with this person, submit an application, and provide supporting documentation to receive accommodations. Accessibility Services-related documentation will not be part of your Berkeley College academic record.

 

Important Steps for Registration

  1. Schedule an appointment with an ADA Coordinator or a Personal Counselor. You may also contact the Coordinator of Accessibility Services (listed below under “Contact Us”).
  2. Complete an Application for Accessibility Services and Accommodations with the ADA Coordinator/Personal Counselor.
  3. Provide current documentation of a diagnosis from a licensed professional along with that professional’s recommendations for appropriate accommodations to the ADA Coordinator/Personal Counselor. You can discuss this process with them.
  4. Renew your accommodations each semester by submitting the Accessibility Services Semester Form.

Documentation Guidelines 

The student with a disability is required to provide medical and/or psychological documentation supporting the claim of disability from a licensed professional. The claim of disability used is the label put forth in the federal legislation of the Amendments Act of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 2008. The disability must substantially limit the person from completing a major life activity. The medical and psychological documentation (e.g., reports, clinical notes, evaluations, etc.) must be no older than four years. In addition, the medical and psychological documentation must include the following:

  1. Diagnosis of the disability
  2. Severity of the diagnosis
  3. Functional limitations of the disability
  4. Treatments provided for the disability
  5. Recommendations for successful learning
  6. Must-have accommodations

In addition to the student with a disability providing the required medical and/or psychological documentation of the disability, the student must include a current Berkeley College Application for Accessibility Services and Accommodations in his or her initial packet for services.
