Disability Support Services (DSS)

Clark College and the Disability Support Services  (DSS) Office staff assist those with disabilities in pursuing their educational goals.The DSS staff is committed to assuring Clark College, its services, programs, and activities are accessible to individuals with disabilities. The institution takes seriously its responsibility to follow both the spirit and letter of all pertinent federal and state mandates.

Clark College recognizes that traditional methods, programs, and services may need to be altered to assure full accessibility to qualified persons with disabilities. The DSS Office is the primary focus of efforts by Clark College to assure nondiscrimination on the basis of disability. Through the DSS Office, qualified persons with disabilities can address their concerns regarding attitudinal or procedural barriers encountered, as well as any need for accommodation to assure equal access. The DSS Office will provide information and auxiliary aids or services, as well as serving as a resource to the campus community in striving to make Clark College both an accessible and hospitable place for persons with disabilities to enjoy full and equal participation.

If you are a current student or a prospective student with a disability and feel you would benefit from accommodation we hope you will contact the Disability Support Services Office.  View the Accommodation Request Procedure located in the right navigation for steps on getting started.

Pregnancy-related Accommodations
A student who experiences medically-necessary absences related to pregnancy, childbirth, false pregnancy, termination of pregnancy, or recovery from any of these conditions can request accommodations, such as flexibility with attendance, flexibility with deadlines, and ergonomic seating. Students seeking a pregnancy-related accommodation should promptly contact the DSS office and view the Accommodations Procedure (to the right) for steps on getting started.
