Student Access Services

What can Student Access Services (SAS) do for you?

We work with students with disabilities and the campus community to help ensure equal access to CCC’s educational and community programs.

  • Test-taking facilitation for those with testing accommodations (e.g. extended time, distraction reduced)
  • Reasonable classroom accommodations
  • Access to assistive technology
  • Student advocacy for ensuring accommodations are provided
  • Consultations and collaborations with Instructors
  • Consultations with and referrals to off-campus service providers
How can I get accommodations?
In order to start receiving accommodations, you must meet with the SAS office and complete an intake meeting.  Please be prepared with documentation of your disability.  

Once you complete your intake, you must request accommodations each term. To make an appointment or request accommodations, please reach out to the  Student Access Services (SAS) Coordinator at this link.  
Other Information:

For more information about Student Access at Clatsop Community College, please see the Student Access Services Handbook.

Students receiving accommodations or academic adjustments must continue to meet all of the student learning outcomes for coursework, as outlined in course syllabi.  Additionally, all degree program standards and outcomes must be met.

For additional information about preparing for higher education, students can read the publication “Students With Disabilities Preparing for Post Secondary Education: Know Your Rights and Responsibilities” provided by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office or Civil Rights.

Admitted, degree-seeking students with disability documentation on file with the Student Access Services (SAS)  office may be eligible for the TRiO Student Support Program. See the Plus Program’s page for more information.

Students with disabilities are also encouraged to utilize additional campus supports such as the Math Assistance Center (MAC) in Towler Hall, Room 211, the Tutoring Center and Writing Lab on the 3rd floor of the Library, and assigned Faculty and Staff Academic Advisor
