Accommodations Process

It is the student’s responsibility to initiate services. To do so, contact the manager of SDS, either in person, by phone, or by email. Students are encouraged to contact SDS to discuss present and future needs to facilitate effective planning. Discussions and information regarding a student’s disability will be kept confidential unless a student requests otherwise.

While administrative offices are operating remotely, the best way to initiate services is to email Student Disability Services (disabilityservices@gc.cuny.edu) or complete the contact form below on this webpage. If you already receive services, continue emailing with the SDS manager.

SDS works closely with faculty and the academic program offices to arrange for accommodated exam administration and other types of academic modifications.

Documentation appropriate to the requested accommodations must be provided to the SDS manager; it is kept on file and not shared with any faculty unless necessary and agreed to by the student. This documentation must come from a qualified professional and provide information on diagnosis/specific disability conditions, functional limitations in the higher education setting, and recommended accommodations. The purpose of this documentation is to enable us to determine, together with the student seeking accommodations, the most appropriate accommodations for the student.

​Students may submit documentation securely using our SDS Virtual Dropbox.
Please read the Documentation Guidelines.
