When and How to Request Accommodations

  1. If you wish to access disability support services you must self-identify your need for accommodations in advance with the Dean of Students Office. You may do so by submitting a completed “Request for Disability Support Services” form (available here or from the Dean of Students office) along with current documentation which establishes that you have a disability as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (see “Documentation” for further details). It is recommended that you submit your request form and documentation after acceptance of admission to CMC but prior to your first semester so that appropriate accommodations can be in place at the beginning of your college career. Your request form and documentation will be reviewed and you will be notified if the documentation is acceptable and complete, or if further information is required. Once eligibility is established, you will be notified in writing of your approved accommodation(s). If you would like to meet with a staff member to discuss your approved accommodation(s) please contact disabilityservices@cmc.edu or 909-621-8114 to schedule an appointment.
  2. While you may register for disability support services and request accommodations after the school year has started, there is a 15 business day waiting period in order for us to process and review your request and documentation, and accommodations will not be immediately available. You may request accommodations at any point in a semester; however accommodations cannot be applied retroactively.
