Center for Disability Services / SNAP

The Center for Disability Services (CDS) views disabilities as an integral part of the rich diversity at College of Charleston. We work collaboratively with students, faculty, and staff to create an inclusive educational environment for students.

  • During busy times, such as three weeks before and after the start of the semester, it may take a minimum of two weeks to schedule a Welcome Meeting due to a high volume of students trying to connect. Students new to CofC are strongly encouraged to request accommodations from CDS as early as possible prior to attending.
  • Current students may request accommodations at any time but are encouraged to meet with CDS as soon as they become aware of a need. We do not accommodate retroactively.
  • It may take time after a Welcome Meeting to finalize and facilitate accommodations.
