This page provides information on the process of getting registered for accommodations at Peninsula College. Students can register for accommodations at any point, however, we recommend having the process completed at least four weeks before the start of classes. If you have any questions about the registration process or need assistance completing it, please get in touch- we are here to help!
Registering for Accommodations:
STEP 1: Submit the SSD Registration form. Please include medical documentation if available.
STEP 2: SSD staff will reach out to the student to schedule an access meeting. Participating in this meeting is a requirement to establish accommodations. In this meeting, SSD staff and the student will:
- Discuss the student's experiences, including educational experiences. A student's self-report on the barriers or problems they face is a critical component in establish accommodations.
- Review any documentation the student has submitted.
- Discuss accommodations.
- Address any questions the student may have.
- Go over the responsibilities of a student registered with SSD and accessing accommodations.
Our office accepts accommodation requests throughout the year, however, we recommend having the accommodations process completed at least four weeks before classes start. This helps ensure that support is in place by the time a student needs them. It is never too early to request accommodations.
