Student Disability Services

The College of Southern Idaho is sensitive to and understanding of its responsibilities to equal access, accommodation and support of individuals with disabilities. Staff and faculty alike provide resources, advocacy, and collaboration across our campus community. Student Disability Services (SDS) builds and maintains partnerships with students, faculty, staff, and administrators to promote an accessible, non-discriminatory learning, teaching, and working environment meeting the needs and abilities of students with disabilities.

In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as amended in 1992 and with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, the Office of Student Disability Services is proactive in developing specialized accommodations to best support the abilities of each individual eligible for such services.

Services for students with disabilities are individualized to the needs of each eligible student. Students who wish to provide to SDS the needed documentation and make a formal request for services are encouraged to contact the office well in advance. The earlier the collaboration begins the better.

Documentation and Request for Services - When a student wants specialized, disability-related support, documentation of the disability must accompany the request. The needed documentation is most often an evaluation by an appropriate professional that describes the diagnosis and the current impact of the disability, in a college setting, as it relates to the needed accommodations. Reasonable accommodations are made in context with the goals and essential standards of the college program, course, etc. to which the student is requesting access.

In addition to the full spectrum of services available to all students of the College of Southern Idaho, eligible CSI students are benefiting from:

Admission/Registration Assistance

Assistive Technology

Disability Support Staff

Test/Quiz Accommodations

Classroom/Lab Adjustments

Alternate Format

Most physical barriers have been eliminated through sound architectural planning. Students, who need to utilize areas that are not accessible, please contact the Student Disability Services Office to make arrangements for unforeseen needed accommodations.
