Disability Services

Disability Services is known as the Accessibility Compliance Center and Education Support Services (ACCESS). ACCESS is designed to provide accommodations and services to students with a documented disability.

Accommodations assigned by ACCESS Coordinators are applied through partnerships with faculty and student service providers such as Counselors.

Arrange for Accommodations

To arrange for an accommodations review, a student must make an appointment with the ACCESS department for an intake interview. Documentation regarding the student's disability should be presented at that time. Students who are unable to come to campus may confidentially exchange information using their OCC email accounts or by phone

Technology Requirements

Students are responsible for obtaining technology that will allow them to access their online courses and resources from off-campus.

Electronic and Audio Versions of Textbooks

Contact the ACCESS office for information about electronic and audio versions of textbooks and supplementary materials.

Online Course System

D2L, OCC's learning management system, has a number of built-in accommodations for timed tests, assignments, and online forums.

Disability Tutoring

Students with disabilities enrolled in online courses interested in online ACCESS tutoring should contact the ACCESS Office to make arrangements.
