Establishing Accommodation Services

Lewis-Clark State College has the responsibility to provide reasonable and appropriate access to all educational and co-curricular programs, services, activities, and facilities.

  1. Accommodations at LC State are established on a case-by-case basis by meeting with a staff member in the Accessibility Services office. To get started, apply for services through the Accessibility Services Online Services portal.
  2. Upload documentation from a medical source in your Online Services Portal account. Documentation may include educational or medical records, reports and assessments created by health care providers, school psychologists, teachers, or the educational system. If documentation cannot be uploaded please email it to [email protected] or fax it to 208-792-2143.
  3. Complete and upload the appropriate LC State Release of Information form based on your accommodation needs to your Online Services Portal account.
  4. Request an intake meeting with Accessibility Services staff via email. This interactive process is a conversation between the student and their assigned staff member. The student and staff will review documentation, discuss the student’s disability(ies), and determine the needed accommodations.

Accommodations do not automatically renew each semester.  Student must log in to their Online Services Portal to renew accommodations from the previous semester after registering for classes.

Renewing Accommodations:

  1. Log in to your Online Services Portal account.
  2. Click on the box next to each class for which you are requesting accommodations.
  3. Click “Continue to Customize Your Accommodations”.
  4. Select the accommodations you need to activate for each class, then click submit.

  • Students who are not located in Lewiston and take classes online can still utilize the LC State Accessibility Services office.  Please contact our office to make arrangements.
  • LC State students at our Coeur d'Alene Center on the North Idaho College campus should contact the NIC Disability Support Services office.

Contacting Accessibility Services at the beginning of each semester so that appropriate accommodations can be made in a timely manner is very important. Students are strongly encouraged to make this contact within the first two weeks of each semester.

The Accessibility Services Office provides direct support services to all eligible students with documented disabilities to ensure equal access in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and its amendments (ADA, 1990; ADAAA, 2008) as well as Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act (1973).

Discrimination on the basis of a disability is prohibited. No student shall be retaliated against for seeking accommodation under this policy or for participating in any grievance procedures brought against the university because of alleged noncompliance with the policy.
