Disability Support Services

Disability Support Services at Emily Griffith Technical College is committed to providing academic accommodations and support in an effort to create an equal opportunity to participate in and enjoy programs and services at the College. 

Disability Services Offered

  • Accommodations for disabilities
  • Academic advising, registration assistance and support services
  • Communication with case managers in the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation or insurance agencies

Getting Started

Students with documented disabilities may request accomodations through the Disability Support Services office. The student is responsible for self-identifying, requesting the accommodation and for providing documentation of his/her disability. 

Accommodations due to a disability should be requested at least three weeks prior to the service or class. Some services may require additional time to process, so we advise that you submit your requests as early as possible.

  2. Next students must schedule an intake appointment with DSS via the form below. Please allow 1 hour for this appointment. Please email documentation to DSS@emilygriffith.edu or drop off in person to 1860 Lincoln Street, 6th Floor. For more information on specific disability documentation guidelines, please refer to the documentation guidelines found in the Disability Support Services Manual. Prior to the appointment, the intake form and documentation will be reviewed by the DSS advisor.
