Eligibility for DSS Services
Accommodations for students
Accommodations are based on need. When determining accommodations the DSS counselor will look at how a disability is limiting access to the educational process. These accommodations allow students to meet standards, but do not change the essential requirements of the course.
Am I eligible?
To be eligible for disability–related services, students must have a disability as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
How do I sign up?
Make an appointment with a DSS counselor
To receive accommodations while attending Seattle Central students must first meet with a DSS counselor and register with our office. Appointment can be made at the front desk in BE1112 or by calling 206.934.4183. It is best to make the appointment with the DSS counselor when registering with the college. Students can sign up with the DSS office at any time during the quarter.
Please provide medical information documenting any disability when coming in for an initial appointment. For more information on documentation see Individuals Qualified to Determine Disability and Specifications for Documentation. During this appointment, the counselor will meet with the student to determine the accommodations that will best meet the student's needs.
