Who We Are
The Office of Disability Support Services (DSS) at Seminole State offers College constituents equity and excellence in education. By working with students, faculty and staff on all Seminole State campuses, DSS ensures that appropriate academic adjustments are made to give all students equal opportunities inside the classroom and around campus.
Seminole State believes in accentuating the abilities of all students and is committed to providing appropriate academic support services for persons with disabilities to ensure equal access for all.
DSS has helped thousands of students since launching in 1983. In addition to collaborating with Seminole State students and employees, the office works closely with counselors and area agencies to provide academic support:
- Adaptive instructional equipment
- Reasonable accommodations
DSS serves students under the auspices of Student Success Services in compliance with Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. In order to receive services, students must provide appropriate documentation of a disability. Documentation requirements and related forms are available on the Documenting a Disability webpage.
Registering with DSS
Registering with our office will still require the same documentation and additional forms found on our Registering With DSS page, but the registration and interview process will be conducted using Zoom. To inquire about registering or to register for services, please email us at email@example.com stating your desire to register for services, and attach your documentation. We will also be happy to answer any questions you may have.
For current DSS students who need accommodation letters, all requests must be made online or through email. Students can request their letter(s) of accommodations through the Seminole State App Portal (SSAP). If requesting by email, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your name, student number, class titles and the specific accommodations you are requesting. We will gladly process your request.
