Spartanburg Community College provides reasonable accommodations to qualified individuals who have, have a history of, or are regarded as having a disability. The mission of Student Disability Services (SDS) is to provide accommodations in the most integrated setting that is appropriate. We will work with you to make your campus experience accessible it is then up to each student to make that experience successful.

Spartanburg Community College follows a common sense approach when granting accommodations. Generally, any individual who is requesting an accommodation should provide documentation unless the need for the accommodation is apparent without documentation. For example, a student in a wheelchair does not need to provide supporting documentation to request an accessible classroom. However, a student with a learning disability generally would have to provide acceptable documentation to support an accommodation request. SDS publishes documentation guidelines that are available on the SDS web site and in the SDS office.
In the Classroom
Each student is encouraged to talk with his or her instructor about their approved accommodation plan – even before the term begins if possible. This will ensure that the instructor understands the accommodation plan, and it will give SDS time to adjust the accommodation plan based on instructor feedback. Please remember that your accommodations are designed to make the course accessible to you, but they will not ensure your success. You will still have to meet the instructor’s expectations for course performance.
