How to Request Accommodations

Support is available to assist you in becoming a successful college student and LFCC is committed to providing students equal opportunities to pursue their educational goals. To receive protections outlined in Section 504 and ADA, each individual must schedule a meeting with the disability services provider at the campus they plan to attend to discuss their academic needs and request reasonable accommodations.

For prospective students with accessibility questions during the application process, including VPT placement testing, application procedures, or new student registration processes, please contact the disability services provider at the campus you plan to attend prior to your intended visit.

At LFCC, we work hard to focus on the student first, and in keeping with this perspective, all new students to LFCC participate in the New Student Registration process. Once you have completed your application to LFCC and initiated the New Student Registration process, please contact your campus Disability Services Provider to schedule an appointment to discuss academic accommodations.

Accommodation requests requiring assistive technologies (digital textbooks, alternate format texts, and sign language interpreters are examples) often take significant time to arrange and/or implement. In order to help our efforts to support student assistive technology needs, the college recommends students to initiate requests with the disability services campus contact at least 2 - 4 weeks prior to enrollment.  

If classroom accommodations are not requested in a reasonable amount of time prior to the start of classes, the college cannot guarantee accommodations will be processed and completed prior to the start of the semester.
