Preparing for the Transition to CofC in the Spring Semester

 

      Come by the Center for Disability Services/SNAP while you’re at the College of Charleston during summer orientation – either to acquaint yourself with where we’re located or to inquire about the services/supports that are available to you beginning in January.

      Review (during the summer at the earliest) the Getting Started Page (CofC Incoming or Currently Enrolled Students) on CofC’s Center for Disability Services/SNAP website so you know what materials you need to submit – especially if you anticipate needing accommodations for the spring semester.

  • Consult with the office that provides support/assistance to students with disabilities at the institution you’ll be studying at during the fall if you expect to utilize accommodations. The disability-related documentation you’ll provide to CofC’s Center for Disability Services can likely be submitted to them.

      Familiarize yourself with the support services (e.g. Center for Disability Services, Center for Student Learning, Academic Advising and Planning Center) available at CofC while you’re studying abroad. A lot of information is available on each department’s website.

      Gather your SNAP Application and disability-related documentation together and submit it to CofC’s Center for Disability Services/SNAP. Plan to do this immediately following your fall break (either in October or November) Most students submit their materials by:

1. Email:
snap@cofc.edu

2. Mail: 
Center for Disability Services
66 George Street LCTR 104
Charleston, SC 29424

  • Begin to regularly check your CofC email account – especially once you submit your application and disability-related documentation. Create sub-folders, one entitled Center for Disability Services/SNAP to help in staying organized. You’ll receive an email from someone in the Center for Disability Services/SNAP with next steps on how you should proceed after we review the materials you submit. This review process takes approximately 7-10 business days.

      Attend meetings your Site Director has organized– including ones about the transition to CofC.

      Reach out to Anne Osowski, SNAP Services Coordinator, or any Center for Disability Services/SNAP Administrator with your questions or concerns as you prepare for your transition to CofC.
