Your first step is to contact the Disability Services Office as a student with a disability and request accommodations.
Your next step is to submit documentation of your disability to the Disability Services Office. Documentation from your physician, psychologist, Vocational Rehabilitation counselor, or other case manager may be sufficient. We will create an accommodation plan. The plan is based on your documentation and your discussion with the Disability Services Office counselor. Different disabilities require different documentation.
If you suspect that you have a learning disability, attention deficit disorder, or some other condition that impacts your learning, the Disability Services Office may be able to assist in referring you to a qualified professional for testing and diagnosis. Ideally, this should be done before you enroll in classes.
Accommodations are available for placement testing. Therefore, it is extremely important to make contact with the Disability Services Office as soon as you have decided to become a Blue Ridge Community College student. Placement testing with accommodations is available by appointment following the submission, review and approval of documentation by the Disability Services Office, to approve your accommodation request before testing.
