Registration Assistance

Registration assistance may involve:

  • class schedule planning and modification—assists you to develop your educational plan and/or adjust that plan to meet your disability-related needs
  • registration assistance—helps you complete the registration process and enroll in the courses
  • early registration—enrolls you during the priority period to meet disability-related needs and allow time for arranging accommodations

It is advisable to have a plan of courses that meet your educational goals prepared before your registration appointment. If you need assistance to develop such a plan, please make an appointment early in the quarter, before the busy registration period, with a counselor in DSS or the Counseling Center.

Steps to obtain registration assistance through Disability Support Services:

  1. All students must have current medical documentation on file before scheduling an intake registration appointment.
  2. Students new to the program will schedule an intake appointment and, if time permits, may complete registration at that time or may schedule a 2nd registration appointment.
  3. Students must complete the required college placement tests to enroll in English or math. Contact DSS is you need test accommodations for these. Otherwise, check the Schedule or placement web site for times and locations of these tests.
