The Office of Academic Support Services serves as an advocate for students with documented disabilities to ensure equal access to the College. Various support services have been established to assist students according to their documented needs. Every effort is made to help students make a smooth transition to college and to succeed throughout their college experience. Students with disabilities are encouraged to contact the Office of Academic Support Services prior to the beginning of each semester. Accommodations are not RETROACTIVE, so students are encouraged to contact the office and provide all required documentation in a timely manner to ensure student success.
In order to be provided academic accommodations, students must:
Submit a Self Identification Form to the Office of Academic Support. Submitting this form alone does not guarantee accommodations.
Provide documentation to verify disability. Please review documentation criteria to ensure documentation being submitted will be sufficient. Documentation can be submitted to:
Office of Academic Support
4000 Dauphin Street
Mobile, AL 36608-1791
After submitting the Self Identification Form and providing documentation, meet with the Office of Academic Support staff to discuss accommodations. Appointments can be arranged by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once the above has been satisfied students must:
Complete a Faculty Letter Request Form at the beginning of each semester to the Office of Academic Support. If the form is completed prior to the semester beginning, students will receive letters a week prior to the semester start. If the form is completed after the semester begins, the office has at least a week to process and distribute letters to students/faculty.
Arrange to meet with each professor to discuss accommodations the accommodations that have been granted through CASA. The professor is not obligated to provide accommodations retroactively.
Follow the Testing Accommodations procedures to use accommodations for tests/exams.
