Application for and Amending Services Process:

 

Applying for Services:

Students with a documented disability looking to apply for reasonable accommodations and services at SCNM:

  1. Complete and submit, at least one week before the start of a new term*, the Accessibility Intake Form.
  2. Upon completion of this form, you will receive a confirmation page.
  3. Schedule an intake meeting
    Upon receipt of the intake form, SCNMs ADA officer will contact you to schedule an intake meeting. This meeting can be done in person, by Skype, or by phone.
  4. Submit appropriate documentation
    On or before your intake meeting, please submit the appropriate documentation that meets SAO guidelines for your disability, by any of the following methods:
    1. Sending an email to: adaoffice@scnm.edu
    2. Bringing the documentation to your appointment

Upon completion of your intake, SAO staff will then review your documentation. Students will receive a response  with one of the following application statuses:

  • Reasonable Accommodations Approved: when a student’s request for reasonable accommodations have been approved, the student will be notified to finalize their plan before distribution to appropriate faculty. 
  • More Information Needed: when a student’s request for reasonable accommodations cannot be approved due to the need for additional, clarifying or qualifying information to substantiate requested accommodations, the student will be notified of a follow up meeting with the SAO. This follow up meeting can be done in-person, over the phone, or via Skype; whatever is easiest for the student.
  • Application Not Approved: when a student’s request for reasonable accommodations as documented does not qualify him or her for the reasonable accommodations requested, the student will receive notice of the denial. A student may request to have a follow up meeting with the SAO office in order to explain the rationale for the denial.

* Accommodations requested during the term will be implemented when logistically and reasonably possible but may not be applicable until the start of the following term or course. It is recommended that students submit an Accessibility Intake Form to start the evaluation process as soon as you know accommodations will be required to avoid delays.

Amending Current Services:

Students currently receiving accommodations and services at SCNM but wish to add, substitute, or remove approved accommodations for a future term (Not applicable in current term).

  2. Upon completion of this form, you will receive a confirmation page.
