Section Two: Using Disability Services and Accommodations

Furniture Accommodations

For eligible students, DSS works with College Services to arrange for alternatives to traditional classroom chairs and desks to be placed in classrooms. The following are available to accommodate the need for classroom seating or desk alternatives:

  • Adjustable height electric tables,
  • Padded or adjustable chairs
  • Small height adjustable tables
  • Podiums

Individually prescribed seating arrangements are not within the college's scope of responsibility.

If a student's disability calls for a specific classroom seating location, the student can request that a quarter length "Reservation" label be placed on a specific seat.

Furniture accommodation use must be authorized by a DSS Counselor or LD Specialist and is based on disability related educational limitations. 

Please contact your DSS Counselor or LD Specialist to make arrangements for any furniture accommodations.
