SCC is committed to providing equal opportunities for qualified students with disabilities to participate in the courses, programs, and activities of our college. The Academic Support Center is the designated office at South Central College where students with qualifying disabilities can request reasonable accommodations for their courses. Disability Services is part of the Academic Support Center.
Current students who have already established accommodations with our office can schedule an appointment using the options below.
Remote Disability Services Options
- Phone Appointments: On the day of your appointment, a Disability Services staff member will contact you at the phone number provided in the appointment registration process. For privacy reasons, your call may come from a blocked or unknown number.
- Video Meeting: This video option will allow the Disability Staff to visually share information. Prior to your appointment, you will receive an email from financial aid providing a link to your scheduled appointment. It is important that you have reliable internet service. This is a great option if you would prefer a visual experience and it is easy to use.

Requesting Accommodations for the First Time
To request accommodations for the first time, students must meet with Disability Services staff to discuss their accessibility concerns or barriers and provide appropriate documentation. Students can request a meeting with DS staff by submitting the DS Info Appointment Form or by calling 507-389-7222.
Documentation should be comprehensive, discuss the current impact of the disability, and be signed by an evaluator qualified to make the diagnosis. The nature of your disability will determine what documentation you will need to provide. DS staff will provide you with guidelines on documentation if you are unsure of what to provide.
Students with high school IEPs or 504 Plans are welcome to submit them for consideration. You will need to provide your most recent Evaluation Report along with your IEP or 504 Plan. DS staff will review the documentation to determine if there is enough information in it to determine disability status at the college level. Please note that your high school IEP or 504 Plan is written to meet requirements under the Individuals with Disabilities Educational Act (IDEA), which does not apply at the college level.
SCC will provide reasonable accommodations, adjustments, and/or auxiliary services that are warranted and supported by the received documentation and structured student interview. Accommodations cannot fundamentally alter the educational program or academic requirements that are essential to a course or program
