What we do

The Lakeland Student Accommodation Center helps the college to remain in compliance with applicable laws and to offer students with documented disabilities reasonable accommodations which provide access to all of Lakeland's programs, classes and activities. Each accommodation is tailored to meet the needs of the individual student. The Student Accommodation Center recognizes each student's right to be treated with dignity and respect and encourages students to move toward increasing independence and responsibility in their academic life.

More About the Student Accommodation Center

The counselors for students with disabilities coordinate support services for eligible students with physical, psychological, or learning disabilities in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Services may include the following:

  • Individual contact with faculty members regarding classroom accommodations
  • Personal, career and limited academic advisory
  • Liaison with The Learning Center, support groups and community agencies
  • Priority registration
  • TDD and adaptive technology
  • Alternative testing arrangements

Students must present recent documentation of their disability from the appropriate physician, psychologist, school district or other qualified professional. This documentation is subject to review and approved by the college. All records are confidential. Students must be registered for classes during the special registration period (listed in the course schedule) to be guaranteed provision of all identified accommodations. For further information contact the Student Accommodation Center.
