Students with Disabilities & ADA

Westchester Community College (WCC) is committed to creating a learning environment that meets the needs of its diverse student body. If a student has a documented disability, it is the student’s responsibility to self-identify by signing up through the Disability Services Office (DSO) either online or in person. Once signed up for accommodations, the student must inform the professor via a Referral to Faculty notification provided by the DSO. A Testing Accommodations Request form must be completed online or in person no later than three business days before the quiz/exam date to allow for accommodations to be arranged with the DSO.

The DSO is located in room G-51 on the ground floor of the Library in the back of the Academic Support Center. For more information regarding accommodations offered at WCC you may visit the Disability Services Office Website.
