Accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis considering an individual's limitations and the academic demands and responsibilities of residential life at Lewis-Clark State College.

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.

Providing Accessibility Services with appropriate medical, psychological, psycho-educational, or neuro-psychological documentation indicating the student's disability and suggested accommodations is required to help expedite the accommodation process and must be submitted with the disability intake form.

Common Accommodations

A wide range of accommodations and services are provided to students with documented disabilities. A student with a disability is any student who has an impairment that substantially limits a major activity such as caring for oneself, performing manual tasks, hearing, speaking, breathing, walking, seeing, learning, or working.  Students with temporary disabilities may also qualify for accommodations.  The list below provides information on some of the most common accommodations.

Alternate Test Services may include a student needing an alternate testing room (a noise-reduced environment) and/or an extended testing time outside of the in-class time period.  Once the need for an accommodation regarding testing is documented, and testing accommodations are assigned, contact the LC State Testing Center to schedule your test a week in advance.  Review the responsibilities for students, faculty, and the Testing Center on the Alternate Test Services page.

Students who are approved for note-taking accommodations have a number of options for receiving their accommodations. Different options may be preferable based on the student’s learning style, the nature of the courses, the nature of the student’s disability, or the student’s previous experience.  These options will be discussed during your appointment if this is an accommodation appropriate for you.

Note-taking Accommodation Options

LC State complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in allowing use of service animals for students, staff and visitors. LCSC complies with the Fair Housing Act in allowing students the use of emotional support animals that are approved as an accommodation.
