Resources for Students
Accessibility Resources collaborates with the campus community to ensure an inclusive and accessible college experience for students with disabilities. We are dedicated to providing reasonable accommodations and services as we encourage students to develop independence and self‑determination.
Who We Are
The office of Accessibility Resources coordinates support for students with disabilities so they may participate fully in college life and derive the greatest benefit from their educational experiences.
Last year, over 16% of CC’s students were connected with Accessibility Resources. This number includes students with a variety of disabilities, including, but not limited to, learning disabilities, ADHD, psychological disorders, chronic health conditions, allergies, physical disabilities, brain injuries, and sensory disabilities related to vision and hearing. It also includes students with temporary injuries and illnesses, such as concussions and recovery from surgery. Additionally, we consult with students who question whether they might have a disability or are referred by a faculty or staff member.
Whether you're a new student at Colorado College or a current student just now checking out our resources, we'd be happy to talk with you about the services we offer, the Block Plan, or disabilities and access in general.
What We Offer
Our staff members work with students on an individual basis to plan support services, including reasonable accommodations, that facilitate access to learning, living, and other experiences at CC. Some of the accommodations used by students include extended time on exams, a distraction-reduced exam setting, accessible formats of text, note-taking assistance, and accessible campus housing. We also provide academic counseling, including assistance with time management and organizational skills. And in collaboration with Academic Technology Services, we offer a variety of assistive technology options to enhance students' academic experiences.
Connecting with Accessibility Resources
Accessibility Resources is ready to help you make the most of your experiences at CC, but you must initiate the process. Please start off by contacting our office to set up a time to talk with our staff about your request for support services. Additionally, you should complete an Application for Accommodation and provide documentation of disability. The Application for Accommodation can be accessed on our Registering for Services page.
Of course, we're here to help you at any point, so please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or need assistance.
We look forward to hearing from you!
