The Center for Disability Services is dedicated to:
- Ensuring that all programs and services of the College of Charleston are accessible;
- Providing reasonable and effective accommodations while promoting independence in the student;
- Offering educational opportunities to students, faculty and staff that enhance understanding of the various types of disabilities, promoting an environment respectful of all;
- Serving as a resource center for faculty, staff, students and the community.
SNAP (Students Needing Access Parity) Services provides assistance and guidance to students with a documented disability to ensure equal access to all programs and services of the College. More information about the SNAP program can be found in our brochure.
Once a student is approved for services, SNAP provides:
- Reasonable and appropriate accommodations specific to individual needs based on the psychoeducational assessment or medical documentation
- Communication with instructors, upon request, to heighten their awareness of individual student needs and to seek appropriate accommodations
- Alternative courses to the math/logic and foreign language requirement if need is documented by psychoeducational assessment or medical documentation
Please note: If math is considered to be an essential component of the major, alternatives to the math/logic requirement may not be used.
- Assistive Technology: hardware and software students may need to have access to classroom content and activities
