Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) is operating remotely, but we are still available to work with you to get your accommodation needs met. Please email email@example.com to get in touch! We are happy to meet with you via Zoom or a phone appointment- email us to arrange a day and time.
If you would like to request accommodations, complete the steps laid out on our Register for SSD webpage. While the campus is closed, we ask that you submit medical documents electronically. This can be done by either scanning the document(s) or taking a screen shot and attaching them to the registration form or including them as an attachment in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org(link sends e-mail). If sending documents electronically is a barrier, you can fax them to (360) 417-6349.
We understand that reduced access to health care appointments may affect your ability to access the required medical documentation. If you are having trouble getting documentation, please still fill out our registration form and email us at email@example.com and so that we can discuss your options.

Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD)
Peninsula College is dedicated to providing a campus that is accessible, equitable, and inclusive to all. SSD works with students, instructors, staff, administration, and the community to ensure that the accommodations necessary to create equal access are provided to all Peninsula College students with documented disabilities.
The role of SSD
- Determines reasonable accommodations for qualified students with documented disabilities.
- Provides accommodation services support to students and faculty.
- Maintains and protects the confidentiality of student records as required by FERPA.
To setup accommodations, please complete the two steps below:
- Complete the online Registration form found here: https://pencol.formstack.com/forms/ssd_ask_registration
- Submit documentation that includes information on the present impact of the diagnosis and the treatment plan, if there is one. Documentation must come from a professional who is licensed/certified in the area for which the diagnosis is made. The documentation required to determine accommodations may be specific to the diagnosis; please see the Medical Documentation Requirements chart linked at the bottom of this page for more information. Medical documentation can be submitted as either:
- letterhead stationery, and/or official medical records, including medically relevant test results.
- a completed verification form, accompanied by medically relevant test results (see below to download the verification form).
When both the registration form and medical documentation have been received, SSD staff will contact you to schedule an appointment to discuss accommodations.
Please submit requests for accommodations at least four weeks before you plan on accessing them. This timeline also applies to changes and updates to established accommodations.
